Julius J.E. Thompson grew up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, New
York and attended Bushwick High School. The sixties in Brooklyn was an era that
had a personality, a feel , and a life-force that changed a generation. I felt this
energy and experienced these fires of social change.
After high school, I spent the next four years riding the "A" train to Harlem, in upper
Manhattan, to earn my Bachelor of Arts degree from the City College of New York.
At CCNY, which was located just a few blocks from the famous Apollo Theater,
Wednesday afternoons were hard on the undergraduates. The matinee
performances of the major R&B groups of the times were more tempting than
attending a boring college lecture. Most of the time I succumbed, but I attended
enough classes to pass my courses and eventually earn a college degree from one
of the best universities in the country.
At CCNY, literature instructors like Prof. Thomas Tashiro, fueled the fire in me to
become a writer!
