MLK: Now Is The Time

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. ​

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.
