We now have a chance to celebrate the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. virtually just by playing a video game! “March Through Time” was created by members of Fortnite Creative and presented by TIME Studios to educate players on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s magnificent life. It allows those players to witness Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.‘s famous and in-length “I Have a Dream” speech.
Players will also be able to observe the Civil Rights teachings of Dr. King. In this virtual world, the players will get to travel to the Lincoln Memorial and the United States National Mall where Dr. King‘s speech was given.
The experience will have museum-inspired points of interest and quests for players to complete. The quests are designed to engage with important facts that relate to Dr. King‘s speech.
