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.

How will they do it?

The exhibit will use a combination of photogrammetry, — measurements taken from photos — motion capture, AI, and 3D rendering to bring back life to King's speech at the Lincoln Memorial from August 28th, 1963. 

With the approval of King's estate, executive producer Viola Davis and producer Julius Tennon put the project together. 

The premiere will take place at Chicago's DuSable Museum of African American History on February 28th, 2020. 

There's no knowing just how accurate The March will be, however it'll surely be a great addition to the ever-increasing VR projects around the world. It'll bring the moment back to life, and people will be able to actually feel what it was like to be a part of such a historic moment. 

The main point is to enable you to comprehend the significance of such an event, which isn't currently possible through regular movies on a screen.
