Student Group Spotlight: CA/T (Columbia Artists/Teachers)
Periodically, we’ll be spotlighting various student organizations within Columbia’s graduate Writing Program. For this edition, we spoke with CA/T, a group that enables students in the Writing Program to teach writing classes in local high schools, at Columbia, and beyond.
The evening will celebrate the release of the autobiography, Panther Baby, (Algonquin) with a conversation with the author, political activist Afeni Shakur, and Columbia faculty of political science and public affairs, Dorian Warren. IMPACT Repertory Theatre in Harlem will conclude the evening with a performance. 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. His memoir recounts his compelling and illuminating personal odyssey.
