A Panther’s Perspective
Jamal Joseph’s story is unlike many taught in schools during Black History Month. His long list of identifiers includes orphan, activist, FBI fugitive, convict, a drug addict, urban guerilla, and Black Panther. In a speech he made in the 1960s, Jamal urged students to burn down Columbia University. He is now a professor there and a writer, filmmaker, Oscar nominee, youth advocate, drug counselor, and father. His remarkable story of rebellion and reinvention comes to life in a new book called, Panther Baby: A Life of Rebellion and Reinvention. The book is out today from Algonquin.
