Join Angela Thomas & Rodney Smith with Frank Hawkins and Devin Brooks as they discuss, “The Generation Gap between the Boomers and Generations X & Y.” On Our Own Voices Live! February is our nation’s celebration of Black History. There have been many challenges and successes but arguably as a people, African Americans still are not where they should be. For the last couple of weeks we have discussed, “What do African American’s want?” Today we ask the question, “Is there a generation gap between younger and older Black men, if so, what has its affects been and how can we close that gap?” This evening’s topic is; “Recognizing and closing the generation Gap between Male Baby Boomers and Generations X & Y.” Call-in: (347) 826-9600 and press 1 to talk or just hold to listen if you are not near a computer “Recognizing and closing the generation Gap between Male Baby Boomers and Generations X & Y?” This maybe just the repeat of the classic tale of the Young Bull and the Old Bull or is there something more? Today the father typically isn’t in the home or working and the son is left to be raised by his mother, relatives and friends if he is lucky. Often times hearing the few black men in his life talking negatively about the music he listens to, his pants sagging and a seeming absence of ambition and direction in his life. The male child hears mom talking negatively about his father and most men in his life are not the positive role models he needs. Is it a wonder that the young black male feels alone and devoid of male guidance. Has a lack of knowledge of one’s own history and the absence of nurturing fathers in the home led to today’s youth stumbling in the wilderness? Join Angela & Rodney as we tackle this question. Tune in and or Call-in: (347) 826-9600 and press 1 to talk or just hold to listen if you are not near a computer.
