I Am A Man
Winner of Oculus’s 2017 Launch Pad, this VR experience is a powerful meditation on the humanizing potential of walking in someone else’s shoes.

This VR experience allows you to literally walk in the shoes of people who fought for freedom and equality during the Civil Rights era. Using historical film and photographs, along with voice narrations of actual Civil Rights participants, I Am a Man offers a new type of interactive documentary experience and ushers in a rich new way of experiencing history.
