Today, all I ask is that you do your best to understand the experience of Black Americans. One tool that might help is “Traveling While Black,” a VR experience that shows you the travel restrictions and hurdles Black Americans have historically faced in the U.S. This is just a sliver of the indignities and injustices that Black Americans have faced, and the racism white people have heaped upon them. You can find it here on the Oculus Store, and it’s free.
“Traveling While Black” is more than history — it’s about community. Describing the experience, Director Roger Ross Williams says, “People want to do something, and they can’t escape it. They can’t even escape it once they take the headset off.”
