Bethnal Green and Deptford 1977-79
Youth Cultures in transition
This was my first properly ethnographic research project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, while I was running Street Aid, a radical youth project based in Covent Garden. We worked with groups of white and black youth in these two areas with a particular focus on how issues of race were being negotiated. Some of this material was subsequently included in ‘Rethinking the Youth Question’ and also in Multi-Racist Britain ( ed Cohen and Bains) Palgrave 1988.
