Visions of Jazz 5.1

[ ?posts_id=1149372&dest=31672]

This is the final revision of “Visions of Jazz”. An English Honors Group Presentation based on the time-line of the book “Jazz” by Toni Morrison.

In this Video I was finally able to add the Narration to the time-line. Special Kudos to Ed Flynn, Sheila Casey, and Raquel Carter for a great job on the Narration.

Shelia Casey wrote the Script and I took care of combining the images, titles, transitions, and audio together to create the video. Dr. John Russell provided Sheila and I with wisdom and guidance throughout the project.

I learned a great deal about myself as a result of this project, I related with the characters in Morrison’s book in a way that I cant express or understand. All I know is that I have changed emotionally and psychologically as result and in the process learned how to comfort the lost and confused little boy the dwells inside me.

I like to express my gratitude to my Professor, Dr. John Russell for his encouragement, guidance and wisdom; and thank him for giving me the time to understand and come to terms with my own version of Jazz.

I have learned a great deal in his class and have become “anew several times, and I have grown emotionally, intellectually, and academically as a result.

I would like to express thanks to Sheila, for her kind words and direction, endurance, and source of strength. Especially for listening to my own version of Jazz (over and over and over).

To my classmates, it has been an honor to be among you. To Toni Morrison, for writing JAZZ, your book has changed my life! A final thank you to Union County College, a place where I discovered my potential.
