Minecraft March on Washington: Virtual Exploration (MLK Day)
At this time, registration is closed. Stream a tour, live at 11AM.
Tour a virtual exhibit of the historic 1963 March on Washington through the world of Minecraft to interact with Civil Rights leaders like Dr. King himself and activists who are continuing Dr. King's legacy today.
A SPECIAL MINECRAFT MLK DAY PROJECT:
- Meet the activists from the historic 1963 March on Washington who paved the way for change against systemic racism and current activists who are continuing Dr. King's legacy today.
- Build an exhibit of your own within in the Minecraft Java universe.
WHY: Video games, an important means for human connection, have become especially valuable during this pandemic. With 126 million people playing Minecraft monthly, we have the opportunity to leverage this platform to create the infrastructure for a whole new level of volunteer participation. This year, we'll inspire the next generation of activists by giving them a platform to listen to the voices that spoke before them and give them a space for their voices to be heard as well.
- A computer, Mac, PC, or Linux; PS4/5, Switch, mobile or tablet WILL NOT WORK
- Stable internet connection;
- A mic and speakers or headphones for conversations; and
- Access to Minecraft (Java Edition).
- Please note the times listed below are PST
LOCATION: This opportunity takes place online. You will be emailed the link to participate after signing up, and your Project Leaders will show you how to access the exhibit on the day of the event.
