Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation Celebrates 2Pac’s Poetry

tupac.jpgThe Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (TASF) will hold the ninth annual performance of the “Shoulders of Giants” at the Rialto Center for the Arts in Atlanta on Saturday, August 4. The “Shoulders of Giants” is a show based on 2Pac’s poetry, “The Rose That Grew From Concrete,” which was written when he was 19-years-old. The event features musical performances, poetry readings and dance works by Pac’s Kids, students from the TASF Arts Center. “I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with students who are filled with extraordinary creative ability and dedication to produce another outstanding show,” says Celina Nixon, the show’s creative director. “Although some of the students have never performed before, they all have potential to become superstars. In retrospect of my own experiences as a Pac’s Kid, I’m amazed at my achievements and am honored to be the Artistic Director of this production.” Over 700 students have graduated from the TASF Performing Arts Camp, which was formed by 2Pac’s mother, Afeni Shakur.
