"Chill at a party in a b-boy stance"
Back in the days, Photographs by Jamel Shabazz
Am a real fan of the 80's...I love the clothes and the music; but this facet wasn't just about the bling statement; there was a true meaning behind this wave. The clothes they wore and the way they posed was to send a message of pride and strength. Emotionless and fearless the African American man appeared like, just to show that he was somebody, a survivor in spite of the legacy of slavery. The whole style was perceived as "urban", attitude and also music. There's just so much more about it!....
Oh! and I'd kill for those specs!
