Don’t Get Caught with a Pack of Cigarettes and a Forty Ounce
Yet another publication on the various problems and solutions associated with Y2K, this “personal guide to the Y2K situation” published in 1999 sought to reach the underprivileged. The introduction states, “We as a people have many obstacles to contend with such as institutional racism, economic disparity, lack of parity and the list goes on.  One of the last things on our list of priorities is the possibility of technological mayhem. So we decided to put together a guide for you to follow…to make your life a little easier going into the next century.”
