Columbia Knows How to Party
Written by Bwog Staff
Jamal Joseph, the new chair of the School of the Arts film department, apart from being a former Black Panther, Harlem theater stalwart, and all-around artist/activist, also has the unique distinction of having authored a recent biography of slain rapper Tupac Shakur.
Joseph gave Shakur, who made a posthumous $5 million last year, the royal treatment, with his Tupac Shakur Legacy being packaged as an “‘interactive biography,’ with removable reproductions of Tupac’s hadwritten lyrics, notebook pages, personal memorabilia, and a CD featuring rare interviews.”
And, yes, we got this from the CU homepage, and, yes, there is a Q&A with Joseph up on the site.
