TIME Studios is Releasing a VR Experience Recreating the "I Have a Dream" Speech
Almost everyone knows or has heard of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s iconic "I Have a Dream" speech. However, few can say they were there as it occurred in 1963.
Now, thanks to TIME, you will be able to have the full immersive experience of King's speech, as though you were right there.
The magazine will be releasing a virtual reality museum experience called The March, which recreates King's "I Have a Dream" historic moment.

This will be special. At @AmFam, we're proud to partner with @Time to bring #TheMarch to you. Start planning that @DuSableMuseum visit in 2020! https://t.co/oiJopLUpBu— Jack Salzwedel (@AmFamJack) December 18, 2019
