As Seen on Show and Tell: Hidden camera for WWII reenactment event
Gregory is a regular on our weekly Show and Tell hangouts and he wrote in to share more details about his hidden camera project for a WWII reenactment that he participated in. He writes:
I was on show and tell two weeks ago and I showed a hidden camera that I was going to use in a WWII reenactment event, ladyada and phil asked me to send a link to the video from it. The camera didn’t work out, the ribbon cable broke due to my poor design, but I am attaching what video I did get and two pictures.
The first picture is of us in formation, I am on the left side of the frame the only guy with his helmet off and looking away =(
The second is of us talking to our patron, PFC John Bastrika, he was in C co 1st ID which is the unit we reenact in his honor. I am the guy all the way in the back >.>
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
