Hello everyone,

As I watched the informative video on Civil Rights history, I used appreciative and comprehensive listening the most. Appreciative listening was used because I like to listen to videos or podcasts talking about American history. I also like to know the history and what it was like many years ago. Family members may have gotten to live through the times, but I can only listen to videos or read about it. Listening to the video gave me a sense of appreciation not only about the information but also for how far we have come along as a country since then. In How to Improve Your Interpersonal Communication Skills, Saba defines comprehensive listening as, “Focus on understanding the speaker’s message” (Chapter 8, Different Types of Listening).

Because I enjoy and have pleasure in listening to history, I was able to use comprehensive listening to focus assertively on what Professor Gregg Ivers had to say about Marion Anderson. I also enjoy taking notes to better understand the information that is being processed through my ears. I am able to hear the words as stimuli and transfer them to paper to read and gain understanding. Appreciative listening helped me understand the video because I was engaged in learning about an African American woman that changed the history of singing at Constitutional Hall. Furthermore, comprehensive learning helped me to comprehend the video by focusing on the deeper meaning on the facts and information. I was able to learn about segregation and how the Daughters of American Revolution were strict on who was able to perform at Constitutional Hall based on the color of their skin.

I may have learned about an important woman, but I also was able to learn about the racism and unfairness for the rest of the African Americans. I believe that this video is relevant to the current struggle for racial equality. Even though there is no segregation, there still is racism and unfair acts happening towards African Americans. We all have been aware what has happened in the past year with George Floyd, Brianna Taylor, etc. There is still room for us to change as a society and we need to be brave enough to stand up for what is right. Because Harold Ickes gave Marion Anderson a chance to sing at the Lincoln Memorial, it gave more opportunities to sing even at the very place she was prohibited from. It also gave other African Americans the freedom to sit in Constitutional Hall to listen to Marion perform.

In How to Improve Your Interpersonal Communication Skills, Saba says, “Listening is a vital part of communicating” (Chapter 8, Importance of Listening). If we are able to listen effectively, change can happen when we communicate with others. It is important to use the different types of listening and understand the obstacles to effective listening in our interpersonal relationships. I enjoyed the video and looking forward to reading your posts.

 

 

Hey Andrea, I as well like learning about history, I find it fascinating how much things have changed over the years and how much technology has advanced. Our world and society has grown a lot but we definitely have much more growing to do. Although we have books, articles, and the internet to learn about history, I think having videos and hearing about events in history gives us more of an perspective of what happened. As explained in chapter 8 of Saba’s text, “Sound is one dimension of life that helps to explain the world.” Although some may prefer reading over listening, sound is something mostly everyone cannot escape and I believe it is a great way to learn about new events in history. Since listening, “implies interpreting and understanding sound stimuli,” (chapter 8, Saba) I think sometimes we comprehend a message more clearly when hearing it with our own ears, rather than just reading words off a piece of paper, and that we can use the speaker’s tone to focus and understand the message more.

Watching the video, Hidden Civil Rights History and listening to Marian Anderson sing, I used appreciative listening and critical listening. On one hand, the song was elegant and beautifully sung, so hearing how amazing her voice was is astonishing and I felt great pleasure listening to her sing. On the other hand, her singing at the Lincoln Memorial meant something deeper. I listened and searched for a deeper meaning into the song. Searched for both positive and negative vibes coming from her body language, voice, and facial expressions. I also took note on the day of the occurrence. She was an african American woman that was given the chance to show her talent and was finally shown equal rights.

As stated in, How To Improve Your Interpersonal Communication Skills, “As human beings enter the world, sound is one dimension of life that helps to explain the world”(Ch 8, Saba). In this case, Marian as stated in the video raised her voice in tribute” to send a message through song and her voice. She had me not only hearing her song and voice but truly listening to the meaning of her standing up there on such an important day standing up for her rights.

I used appreciative listening because I very much enjoy listening to music, especially when it has great meaning behind it. To me, It is a great honor to have the chance to sing at the Lincoln Memorial and I loved seeing a woman of color getting that opportunity in those cruel unequal times. Critical listening is the other form of listening I used, which helped me understand the video better. This is because she was revoked from the right of performing somewhere else because of the color of her skin and someone took the chance on her and let her perform at the Lincoln Memorial instead. You can tell in her voice, she has tremendous strength but also deep pain and she uses all that, and triumphs over it all as she astonishes the crowd.

I believe this video is relevant to the current struggles for racial equality. There are still individuals/groups like DAR that are treating people unequal due to race and nationality. There are also people like Eleanor Roosevelt helping and standing up for people to have equal rights. Both time periods show some similarities against inequality and things must be done to put an end to it and people must stand up to it as Marian did.

 

 

Hello,

I enjoyed reading your post and how you were able to listen effectively. I also used appreciative listening while I watched the informative video. It was an eye opener to know that you watched her as she sang at the Lincoln Memorial looking at her body language and facial expressions. I was listening to her sing, but did not pay attention to her body language which is important to non-verbal communication. I agree that her voice was beautiful and she was projecting her voice to show how she felt when she sang.

In How to Improve Your Interpersonal Communication Skills, Saba says, “Listening implies interpreting and understanding sound stimuli” (Chapter 8, Difference between Listening and Hearing). It is important when we listen to others that we interpret what they are trying to convey or express when they speak to us. Body language is another aspect to be watching as well. We can also use what we learned in previous chapters of selecting and organizing the stimuli (including sound stimuli) to better understand. Thank you for your post.
