In Panther Baby: A Life of Rebellion & Reinvention (Algonquin, $23.95) Jamal Joseph vividly recounts his introduction to the Black Panther Party, and his progression from a young, naïve street kid to a confident and outspoken member of an influential national movement, and later to an Oscar nominee (for IMPACT Repertory Theatre’s song “Raise It Up” from the movie August Rush) and a professor at an Ivy League college. In addition to providing insight into the Panther movement, Joseph’s story spans and illuminates a ground-shifting and volatile period of New York and national history, encompassing anti-Vietnam protests and the rise of the Weathermen, police brutality and the height of the drug war, the murder of George Jackson and the Attica rebellion, and gang violence and the untimely death of Tupac Shakur (to whom Joseph was godfather). Presented in collaboration with The Center @ Miami Dade College.
