    John Washington (@flossinmedia) joins us on the PDX Black Rose Podcast for the second time. We had a powerful conversation while sharing some of the similarities and differences between systemic racism back in the day, and how it looks now, especially in the middle of a pandemic. John is the editor and chief of Flossin Media, the host of the Black Beat Podcast that takes an unapologetically Black approach to each discussion for a deep dive into the core issues that have historically divided us all. Along with that, John is also the President of the Soul District Business Association, a physical and virtual collective - promoting initiatives, programs, and spaces that bolster the economic opportunity and well-being of Portland's African-American community. Don’t forget to check out our first interview together on our podcast, if you haven’t already.

    (Bonus) I Made an Augmented Reality App that Triggered Racists | Stuck E in Augmented Reality

    (Bonus) I Made an Augmented Reality App that Triggered Racists | Stuck E in Augmented Reality

    So This Summer has been a very interesting one indeed. During the hiatus, I started an activism project with emerging technology. To make a long story short, I Made an Augmented Reality App that Triggered Racists. With all this stuff going on in the world: COVID, Social Unrest, Police Brutality, I decided to make a statement with my work. I had to make an Augmented Reality app for the movement.  

    Watch the full video here: https://youtu.be/fl3QGfF0x7c

    If you want to learn how to make AR apps, you can learn by taking the course I made based on the project on Skill share. You will learn the basics of augmented reality, how to use art in activism, how to build an augmented reality experience in Unity without any code, and how to enhance the experience of thought provoking art with a user interface and user controls. The app will place a 3D model into augmented reality and control the 3D model with onscreen buttons and sliders. 

    You can check out the course here: https://skl.sh/2O2VRuO 

    If you like this, feel free to subscribe on Patreon to get a promo code to the course I made for this on SKillshare, and also the project files I used for this whole project!
