This paper describes the disadvantaged position of young African Americans who are discriminated against and live in a reality of restricted options, making growing up and moving beyond their youthful condition an incredible feat. The writer describes the documentary "Hoop Dreams" that provides young African American males with some hope and opportunities through the game of basketball.

From the Paper:

"In the documentary "Hoop Dreams", our society gives a promising hope of social mobility, while maintaining a very difficult barrier to overcome. It is highly encouraged, and rarely done. Basketball was seemingly the way to rise above that barrier by providing the chance to become something greater. For most, the hope was out of reach, while others held onto their dreams."
