Generation X

Foster Dickson is a life-long Alabamian who grew up in Montgomery during the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s. Like many Generation-Xers in the Deep South, Foster has experienced the changes to this region firsthand and felt the effects personally. Having been born in the post-Civil Rights era and raised during the Reagan-era swing from the Democratic “Solid South” to the “ruby red” Republicanism of today, Generation X has seen historic alterations to the fabric of Deep Southern culture and is now making their own alterations to this much-fabled landscape.
