MJ Study Must-Haves: 5 Reasons to Re-Read ‘Moonwalk’
By Elizabeth Amisu
Taking your first steps into Michael Jackson Research is really about choosing the best sources to keep you interested and engaged. When we allow ourselves to be independent scholars, we keep our minds open, searching and teachable!
This month, it’s important not to let the negative press and articles we are often bombarded with by the media pull us away from what we know about the artist, Michael Jackson.
In the first free video, I explain why re-reading Moonwalk is a fantastic place to begin your researching process and allow the “Real MJ” to rise from the noise.
More importantly, you’ll learn four reasons why a re-read of Moonwalk is needed now more than ever. Remember that the man in the music is the artist you love and adore, so this re-read will ultimately enrich your research for years to come.
Thank-you for your thoughtful comments on The Journal of Michael Jackson Academic Studies dedicated Facebook, Twitter, and Website. I read all the comments, and I’m grateful these resources are helping you study, learn and grow.
