The Life and Legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur
About the Course:
Tupac Shakur had a tremendous influence and is a powerful figure in society. The messages he addressed are as loud today as they were before his untimely demise. This course will grasp an understanding of Tupac’s message by going beyond the misinterpretations of the media and exploring the dual persona that existed within Tupac himself as a poet and activist. The socio-economic condition of his environment as well as his position in society as an African-American male (and its implications) will be evaluated. Emphasis will be placed on analyzing his poetry, songs, roles in film, and complimented by readings and guest speakers.
