It’s been sixty years since Dr. Martin Luther King delivered his iconic "I Have a Dream" speech, but the messages from that speech still resonate today.
“MLK: Now is the Time” is an immersive journey that explores key themes of Dr. King's speech and highlights systemic inequities that persist in our society. Through first-person stories and interactions, “MLK: Now is the Time” drops you into a thoroughly modern interpretation of a contemporary March on Washington that will inform and inspire a new generation of activists.
The experience examines three topics addressed in Dr. King’s speech: housing, policing and voting. Audio from the “I Have A Dream” speech is layered throughout, culminating in a scene that depicts the continued legacy of Dr. King's words through modern-day protests.
TIME Studios' Loren Hammonds sits down with Director Limbert Fabian and Writer Andrina Wekontash Smith to discuss the development and creation of MLK: Now is the Time.
“The March 360” is an immersive film that brings the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s iconic "I Have a Dream" speech to virtual reality for the first time.
