MJ Study Must-Haves: 5 Reasons to Annotate ‘Man in the Music’
By Elizabeth Amisu
When starting your scholarly research of Michael Jackson, who knows where to begin? With all the articles, blogs, the music, the short films, the poetry and lyrics… Getting focused is what truly allows us to have an in-depth experience. It’s important to rise above the noise of shocking sensationalism and strange biographies.
In my second video, I encourage you to annotate a book called Man in the Music: The Creative Life and Work of Michael Jackson, and I give you five reasons why I believe it will be a real anchor, grounding your research. Also, since it was published five years ago, it’s now more affordable than ever.
Thank you for all the thoughtful and supportive shares, likes, comments and questions on The Journal of Michael Jackson Academic Studies dedicated Facebook, Twitter, and Website, from the first video I shared. I read all the comments, and I’m grateful these videos are helping you study, learn and grow.
If you missed the first video in the series, I invite you to watch it now to learn the five reasons why starting Michael Jackson’s own words is so necessary.
