One of the highlight’s of this Friday night’s Manassas Tea Party celebration was the appearance of Sonnie Johnson, President of the Virginia Chapter of the Frederick Douglass Foundation. I’ve never seen anyone at a Tea Party before rile up a crowd like this while blasting through all sorts of leftist preconceptions about who cares about liberty and freedom and attends events such as these. We’re going to be hearing again from this lady, and I hope it’s soon.
This footage was shot just after sunset with no artificial lighting, really pushing one of my cameras to the absolute edge, and I quickly cut this part of Sonnie Johnson’s speech as test footage to see what the results were of some of the post-production enhancements. I hope to at some point get her full remarks up on video, but that’s going to be just a little while.
What a great event this was. I’ve never seen the Harris Pavilion so packed, and I’ve never been to a Tea Party rally with such energy.
