Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
Bakari Kitwana examines his own generation's disproportionate incarceration and unemployment rates and the collapse of its gender relations. The author gives his own political and social analysis of where black youth culture is heading.
Main Description
The Hip Hop Generation is an eloquent testament for black youth culture at the turn of the century. The only in-depth study of the first generation to grow up in post-segregation America, it combines culture and politics into a pivotal work in American studies. Bakari Kitwana, one of black America's sharpest young critics, offers a sobering look at this generation's disproportionate social and political troubles, and celebrates the activism and politics that may herald the beginning of a new phase of African-American empowerment.
