This slideshow covers most of the events I attended as a media assistant with Harlem Talk Radio. The Verizon Empowerment event photos were taken with a Cannon HDV30 camera, while the others were taken with a Sony Cybershot camera and the iPod 4. I took most of these photos to build my portfolio and some just for fun.
