Jamal Joseph: Coming of Age in the Black Panther Movement
In the 1960s, Jamal Joseph exhorted students at Columbia to burn down their college; today he's chair of its School of the Arts film division. Joseph, author of Panther Baby, chronicles his personal odyssey, from high-school honor student Eddie Joseph to his introduction to (and eventual leadership of) the Black Panther Party, to sentences at Riker's Island and Leavenworth, and to the halls of Columbia, illuminating the life of a soldier inside the militant movement--and a life of rebellion and reinvention. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life with University Book Store. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
