From the TALK series, Growing Up American
Discussion Leader: Denise Low-Weso

Benji explains the central terms of his summers away: "First you had to settle the question of out." The "out" is out from school, out for vacation, and out to Sag Harbor, but for the African American elites who made the resort their vacation home, the ins and outs of it were more complex. In Sag Harbor, an enclave for an emerging black professional class, fifteen-year-old Benji must try to come to terms with growing up, with African Americanness, and with American popular culture.
