What: In 1986, Afeni Shakur relocated her daughter and son Tupac from Harlem to Baltimore.  After two years at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, the late rapper transferred to the Baltimore School for the Arts, where he got an education in acting, poetry and dance. He also became close friends with classmate Jada Pinkett.
