In a New Photobook, Stirring Memories of Man on the Moon
Hyperallergic has a comprehensive review of The Moon 1968-1972, a new book from T. Adler Books, which includes many stunning photographs from that period.
The Moon 1968-1972 focuses on the latter period of the Apollo Program, which ended with Apollo 17 in December 1972, and included six missions that landed men on the moon and successfully brought them back to Earth. The book contains several dozen photos that were shot by Apollo Program astronauts from their command/service modules and on the surface of the moon, along with a brief introduction by publisher Tom Adler, a paragraph from The New Yorker by E.B. White in response to the first-ever moon landing by Apollo 11 in July 1969, which was piloted by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, and a very brief excerpt from the transcript of communications between the crew members of the Apollo 12 mission of November 1969, the second trip to deliver two men to the moon’s surface.
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
