Hip Hop Generation Series
Part 1, 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.
Part 2, The Roots of the Hip Hop Generation Today many of the clients sitting in your office or in your treatment program are a part of the Hip Hop Generation, a group of young adults that many of us do not understand. During his new two-part video Hip Hop Sobriety, Delbert Boone addresses the influencing factors of this often controversial group of young people. During Part One, The Roots of the Hip Hop Generation, Delbert Boone describes the Hip Hop Generation as those born between 1965 and 1984. He explains how those at the end of the Civil Rights and Black Power Generation were essentially the ones who gave birth to the movement that has been defined as the Hip Hop Generation. He explains why those at the beginning of the generation have a vastly different interpretation of hip-hop music and culture than those at the end of the age group. During Part Two, Treating the Hip Hop Generation, Delbert provides strategies for effectively working with clients of the Hip Hop Generation. He explains why achieving wealth, by any means necessary, is more important than most anything else to this generation.
