Traveling While Black is a cinematic VR experience that immerses the viewer in the long history of restriction of movement for black Americans and the creation of safe spaces in our communities. Confronting the way we understand and talk about race in America, Traveling While Black highlights the urgent need to remember the past but and facilitate a dialogue about the challenges minority travelers still face today.
