Already got my tickets for this event, which takes place tomorrow.  Here's the description via the Film At Lincoln Center site:

Armond White joins us on stage for a one-of-a-kind tribute to the King of Pop. White will also be signing his new book Keep Moving: The Michael Jackson Chronicles.

Michael Jackson’s pioneering work in music
video raised the art form from cable television footnote to the highest
standards set by the movie musical tradition—and invented a few more
along the way. Cultural critic and author Armond White returns to the
Walter Reade Theater to reacquaint us with Jackson’s singular music
video innovations.

“When Hollywood didn’t come calling, Jackson responded with a
series of short musical films that displayed his affection for pop
tradition,” says White. “From the popular Thriller to the great Black
or White and other landmarks, Jackson—the ultimate
performer-as-auteur—changed the way the world responds to cinema.”
