how can I hook-up an old black and white monitor to a video jack? Answered

I have an old IBM black and white monitor, is there a way I can hook up a video jack to it so that it can display video signals from places like a vcr? if so, how?!!?

Do you mean black and white, or monochrome? Either way, something like a VCR outputs composite video. The monitor either takes a monochrome video signal, or a VGA signal. Either way, there's no way to just plug it in and have it work. Some amount of non-trivial conversion will have to take place.
