You will share an intimate series of moments with several of the patrons of Ben’s as they reflect on their experiences. An Emmy-nominated virtual reality (VR) experience, Traveling While Black immerses you in the long history of restriction of movement for black Americans and the creation of safe spaces in our communities.
An optional discussion to follow the Traveling While Black VR experience.
