Come join People Productions for an evening with Jamal Joseph!
A Life of Rebellion & Reinvention
By Jamal Joseph
Thursday, February 21, 0213 pm
Main Library Auditorium
Jamal Joseph walked into his first Black Panther meeting expecting to be armed with a gun. Instead, he was given a stack of books and the directive to start serving his community. Joseph describes himself as an "evolved' Black Panther who is still very much 'involved' in the struggle for social change". Join him as he discusses his experience in the Black Panthers, and how it shaped his revolutionary life.
There will be a book signing and reception to follow.
This event is sponsored by the Friends of the City Library, the Office of the Vice President of Equity and Diversity and Ethnic Studies Program-University of Utah, Barbara L. and Norman C. Tanner Center for NonViolent Human Rights Advocacy-University of Utah, People Productions and the Calvary Baptist Church.
Blues for An Alabama Sky has been postponed until the spring of 2013-please check back for updates and showtimes.

That following summer, People Productions presented Lynn Nottage's critically acclaimed play, Ruined (Also Directed by Richard Scharine) which received rave reviews from the Salt Lake Tribune as well as a growing number of audience viewership. Although Richard Scharine is no longer acting as the Artistic Director for People Productions, his previous assurance to the organization will always be a reminder of just how profoundly dedicated the human spirit can be. We would like to say THANK YOU again to Richard for his endless commitment and passion to People Productions. We will continue to celebrate both you and Edward's spirit in the many years to come. Thank you for supporting the African-American community in Salt Lake City for the past 11 years.
We would also like to thank Linda Moon and everyone who has supported People Productions over the last 11 years. We graciously thank all of the actors who have performed in our productions as well as those who donated their time and effort in the areas of Technical design, set and sound. THANK YOU again!! Here's to another great 11 years!
Yes, we do intend to move forward, but not without remembering where we started…
