Buppies, B-Boys, Baps, and Bohos: Notes on Post-Soul Black Culture
In this new and expanded edition of Nelson George's classic cultural study, contemporary black culture is chronicled through essays on music, film, sports, publishing, politics, and city life, both uptown and down. Buppies enters nearly every arena of the black urban U.S.A.: roisterous rappers and legendary hoopsters, streetwise hustlers and influential filmmakers, unsung musicians and drug dealers at work. In an edition updated with a new introduction as well as new essays, Nelson George's vibrant work clearly remains the definitive take on contemporary African American culture.

Got this book for $1 at a book sale at East Cleveland Public Library. It was well worth the dollar! I definitely got a deal. It is old, but relevant in the life of a poet, writer, researcher, etc. Read full review
