Abstract:

The Cosby Cohort examines the now-grown children who were raised in the black middle class. This probing book studies how their parents established their middle class position, how they interact with white America, the pressures placed upon them by their parents, how they connect with African Americans of other social classes, and more. Even though these young African Americans grew up watching The Cosby Show, as the book reveals, their stories reveal a much more complex reality than portrayed by the show.
