The Freshest Kids: A History of the B-Boy is a documentary on the origins of hip-hop culture in the South Bronx neighborhood of New York City during the 1970s, particularly "b-boy" culture. With the rise of hip-hop culture in the late 1970s, the youth of inner cities began to get involved in DJing, rapper, graffiti and, concurrently, breakdancing. Those who would breakdance were known as b-boys or "breakboys." Breakdancing, and the b-boys who pioneered it, would become an instrumental part of hip-hop culture, influencing a generation of dancers who took their high-energy dances from the streets into the dance halls, from New York City to the far reaches of the world. The Freshest Kids: A History of the B-Boy culls historic documentation of b-boy and hip-hop culture in the form of archival footage from the 1970s into the 21st century, with interviews from hip-hop pioneers and innovators who grew up in and around the South Bronx when hip-hop was just forming.moreless
