We live in a world that is much different from which our parents (and myself) grew up in. As a 32 year old, as it goes without saying, my perspective in life is severely different compared to my teenage years.
If you remember the year, 1989, and when BET launched a show called Teen Summit. It lasted for 11 seasons and ended its last episode in 2011. The show offered awareness on safe-sex (STD, etc) and everything that teens encounter through their adolescent years. It also gave the youth a voice of expression sans ridicule while also acting as a vessel support system for black teens.
