  • This was an interesting and cool summary to read. I didn’t know that there are women today that referring to themselves as witches. But, it is interesting that they are claiming themselves as witches for a completely different reason rather than what they would typically stand for. I am interested and intrigued to see what else other information…Read More

    Julissa commented on the post, Being Black

    I really like how you described and told the book. I have never read the book, but this gave me a little overview of what to expect if I was ever to read it. I think it is interesting how they treat black people here specifically. One thing maybe to help that comment that you made would be to compare how it was before to how they are treated…Read More

  • I think and find it very interesting that you are looking into this topic. As a society, we have turned to trying to find out every single little detail about anyone that is famous. It has even gone to a point in which t.v. shows and movies are made to document this famous person’s life. I am interested to see where this will go.

    • Julissa, I really enjoyed reading your ideas about the influence of music in culture. Often I forget how big a role music plays in unifying cultures and people. Your example of artists who have used their skills to mix to culture through song is a reminder of how globalized our world has become. Music has become an essential source of unification in our diverse world today. I am curious to know if there are other examples of traditional music being combined for other purposes.

    • I really enjoyed learning about the influence of music. Music is so synonymous with many cultures and it is really interesting to hear about. Music brings people together between cultures and well as within.

    • Julissa,
      This is such an interesting topic! I loved learning more about how music reflects a culture and can be one of the biggest defining characteristics. It was very fascinating to learn about some traditional Mexican composers. I definitely will be looking into some of their work. I look forward to reading more from you!
