Episode Summary

EDIT
Professor Jamal Joseph talks about growing up in New York City and the life stories chronicled in his autobiography, Panther Baby: A Life of Rebellion & Reinvention. (3:59) Jamal Joseph’s life has all the makings of a great book. A Black Panther at only 15, he was in jail at 16 and later served time in federal prison in Leavenworth, Kan., where he got his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. After his release, he founded a theater group, became a filmmaker and today is a Columbia professor. Yet he avoided writing an autobiography. “When you’re living in your own skin, even though people are telling you your life is really interesting, you kind of resist that,” he said. “And the storyteller in me didn’t know quite how to tell the story.”moreless
