About 10 years ago, I was in a class on working in a multi-generational workforce. Each table of students had people from different age groups. One assignment was to write down several events that you considered important and someone else at your table would read it. A young black woman wrote down the assassination of Biggie and 2Pac. An older white guy read it as the assassination of Biggie and ZPac.
I’m an old white guy and I can’t tell you the name of any of 2Pac’s songs. However, he was a prominent artist and I think everyone should know who he was. I would certainly recognize pictures of him. He even had a Baltimore connection. He lived here for four years.
