The American Dream is a concept that people have been trying to realize for centuries. When it comes to the dream, no one has been trying to realize it more than generations of young Americans that also happen to be black. Through the generations, they have been trying to find that promise of prosperity and freedom.

Young black people have also been coping with the limitations of this reality for nearly the same amount of time. There have always been those that wanted to realize the dream for themselves but never got to that place. Now there is another generation, a new round of people that are going after happiness, success, and even freedom, and all on the terms that they make themselves.

Allen imparts stories of black millennials that are on the quest to find a better present and future for themselves. Despite policies that are racist that have made traditional success stories all but closed off to them, and watching relatives and the generations that came before them follow the rules but still not be able to get ahead.

These individuals have watches their elders struggle and do their best to fight and try to escape the vicious oppressive cycles to get out of them to the prospects that are more promising. Much of the time, they did not succeed, despite their best efforts. Some of them got into debt and only continued to sink deeper into it.

Even though they are living in an era where a black man has already been elected the president of the United States, American black people in their youth are coming up against a crucial turning point in history. Interlaced with the tales of others is the story of this author as well.
