Remembering Tupac Shakur
16 years ago, I was a freshman at Troy High School in Michigan getting ready to go on the Himalaya ride at the school carnival, when the man with the mic announced that my favorite artist had died in Las Vegas. Tupac was shot 7 days earlier after leaving a fight at the MGM Grand Hotel. He was pronounced dead at 4:03pm PST. Journey to the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation with me.
This life size statue of Pac rests at the head of a cross-shaped pool at the Tupac Amaru Shakur foundation, Stone Mountain Georgia. Of course, I was first in line to check out the center whose mission is to provide an environment that encourages freedom of expression, serves as a resource for families, and empowers via education.
Since its inception TASF has offered performing arts camps, essay competitions, youth book clubs, visual arts workshops, community development projects, and scholarships to students pursuing undergraduate degrees.
The peace garden serves as a mediation walk space.
