Building A Bridge To The Hip Hop Generation
With a group of young adults of the Hip Hop Generation, Delbert Boone discusses the influencing factors of their generation and how they have relied on clothes and music to define their culture. He addresses their values and morals, rites of passage, social norms and the mixed messages they have received from the media and their peers. He discusses why most of them got their education off the street and they felt that school was not going to do them any good. Boone also addresses interpersonal relationships and why most young people of their generation dont want people in their business and often isolate and start using drugs. Boone addresses why this generation does not believe a job can get them the things they want in life and explains why drug trafficking appeals to them.
