It’s hard to come to grips with the fact that I’m graduating. Of course, these aren’t the circumstances any of us thought we would be graduating in, but I couldn’t be happier that I had the chance to share my research with our school community – regardless of the fact that it was online.
I am so grateful to have had the chance to work with Mr. Goldman on this. He is a truly wonderful teacher. I was able to learn a lot from him about the purpose of history and its continuities into the present. His advice allowed me to truly understand that the people discussed in textbooks and their experiences are real. This is an obvious fact, but it is elusive. The raw emotional power carried by protest music makes this fact more apparent. It connects the listener to those who came before.
Completing this project was the best way to conclude my time at Basis. I loved each of my fellow classmates’ presentations as well. I wish you all the best. Thanks for everything!
If you wish to view my presentation, I invite you to watch it here. I hope you enjoy it!
