‘The March’ At DuSable Lets You Step Into An Iconic Moment In History

On a hot summer day in 1963, more than a quarter-million people joined the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, and witnessed Martin Luther King Jr.’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech. Now, through virtual reality, a new generation will be able to witness Dr. King deliver that speech firsthand and walk in the footsteps of those who marched that August day.

Reset sits down with the co-creators of VR exhibit called “The March,” ahead of its premiere at the DuSable Museum of African American History on Friday.
