Can some one give me a hand?

Posted to Utterances

I'm really new to the beat scene. Actually I'm a college student trying to find information about the beginning of the Beat Movement. My whole project is I'm trying to find some relevance between the Beats of years past, and the ravers of today. So far, I've found alot of similarities, and a few differences. I personally rave alot, and from what I've learned so far about the Beat Movement, I have alot in common with the Beats as well. Again, if any one can point me in a direction to find additional information on like how the movement began, or more specifics on what life for the original Beats was like please let me know.
