Jamal Joseph recounts his life as a member of the Black Panther Party in New York City in the 1960s and '70s. The author recalls his introduction to the Panthers his senior year of high school and reports that a year later he was sentenced to prison for conspiracy as one of the Panther 21. Upon being exonerated, he participated in the Revolutionary Black Underground, where his involvement sent him back to prison. Mr. Joseph recounts his time served and his procurement of two colleges degrees during his second prison sentence and that he is now a professor and chair of Columbia University’s Graduate Film Division, the same institution he once urged students to set afire during one of his speeches as a Panther. Jamal Joseph spoke at the Free Library of Philadelphia. Sultan Ahmad moderated the question and answer period and introduced a visit by Bobby Seale. close
