You can get to experience the human microphone. There is no amplification at the park. So when someone speaks, those within earshot repeat what was said so that those standing farther away can hear. It is quite amazing to realize that most of the three hundred or so people that attended the talk never could actually hear Thurman’s voice! But you can. That little microphone attached to his sweater is mine. In anycase, standing in the rain for ninety minutes brings this hour of video, which in some places is a bit jumpy because I don’t have a proper tripod. But that probably adds to a sense of “you are there”. You may also notice that people occasionally raise their hand and wiggling their fingers, that’s custom for expressing appreciation or agreement.
