For this project, I participated in the annual Revolutionary War re-enactment at Greenwood Cemetery, the Battle of Brooklyn. Dressed as a colonial militia man, I interacted with re-enactors in exercises and with visitors in activities while I was followed by a documentary photographer throughout the day. During the re-enactment I carried The Ferguson's Protestors Open Letter and the Red Nation's 9 Points Manifesto in my shoes.
