Columbia Conversations Online
Jamal Joseph’s Panther Baby

Join the Columbia Alumni Association (CAA); the School of the Arts, Office of Community Outreach; Public Programs; and the Institute for Research in African-American Studies for a live webcast from Miller Theatre on the Morningside campus.

The event will celebrate the release of this unforgettable and moving autobiography,
Panther Baby with the author, special guests,
and a performance from IMPACT Repertory
Theatre in Harlem.

Jamal Joseph, film faculty and the author of the illustrative biography Tupac Shakur Legacy (Atria, 2006) publishes a gripping memoir, Panther Baby. The book is an intimate account of Joseph’s coming of age within the Black Panther movement. From the streets of Harlem to Riker’s Island and Leavenworth prison to the halls of Columbia University, Joseph is a heralded community advocate and a cofounder of IMPACT. His memoir recounts his compelling and illuminating personal odyssey.

Joseph will be joined by his mentor, political activist, and mother of Tupac Shakur, Afeni Shakur and Columbia political science professor Dorian Warren, Daily Voice political editor on MSNBC.
