Beyond the Crack Generation

 Author: K-Rahn  Category: Nonfiction  Publisher: KP Publishing Company  ISBN: 978-0991638253  Language: English  Tags: Paperback $15.00 |

Beyond the Crack Generation: Surviving a Trauma Organized Culture takes readers on an autobiographical journey sharing what created the lost youth generation of the ’90s and beyond. Vallantine addresses the pervasive and lingering impact the crack cocaine epidemic had on mainstream Hip Hop culture and Urban America, the generation whose children are now our disengaged youth. The author answers the echoing question: How did our young people lose their way? along with approaches to reclaiming and helping to heal them.

Beyond the Crack Generation: Surviving a Trauma Organized Culture offers first-hand experience with community challenges related to culture and the socioeconomics of urban life.

“K-Rahn’s not only been there and done that, but he’s lived to tell a compelling story of overcoming youthful mistakes and has returned with a roadmap to successful survival. Moreover, he does it without rancor, finger-pointing, or a sense of moral superiority.

Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Professor of Sociology, Georgetown University
