Minecraft March on Washington : Join this Virtual Service Experience (MLK Day)
Tour a virtual exhibit of the historic 1963 March on Washington and Little Rock 9 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 and/or add content to the experience for students to learn from in the Minecraft Java universe.
WHY: MLK Day of Service is a defining moment each year when Americans across the country step up to make our communities more equitable and take action. Dr. King believed that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” as he fought for systemic change. His example is our call to action.
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.
