Today is a day to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., and Meta has honored this in an amazing new way. They have developed “MLK: Now Is the Time”, their latest virtual-reality project which takes viewers on a journey through the civil rights leader’s life. You can take part in pivotal moments in history such as civil rights protests and view firsthand his impassioned speeches about hope for peaceful reform.
The work merges cutting edge technology with historical knowledge to create an immersive, 360-degree look into MLK’s fight for justice and equality during a tumultuous time period, allowing past events to connect with related contemporary issues that our society continues struggling with today. Using powerful visuals combined with audio clips from powerful orators like Dr. King himself, “MLK: Now Is The Time” transports viewers back nearly 60 years ago so they may gain deeper insight into history while developing connections between then and now – connecting us all to this iconic figure who changed our world forever.
