Blog Assignment #1 Modern Media Griot

21 Feb

Preserving History

A griot is a West African story-teller that uses the oral tradition (story telling) to preserve history or tradition. Many are musicians, singers, and poets. In Farenheit 451 the professors that Montag meets towards the end of the book serve as griots (in their own right); as they will retell the stories/ information from the books that have memorized. For this assignment consider some of the issues that we have discussed in lab and lecture ie..resistance, literacy, as they relate to World, American, or personal history and create or find an image (still or video) or piece of sound that tells a story that you wish to preserve.
