[sold out] Xtended: Traveling While Black
Filmmaker and writer Roger Ross Williams makes use of VR technology to have us experience what it means to be black in the United States.
In Traveling While Black you are seated at a table in Ben’s Chili Bowl, a restaurant in Washington that’s in 'The Green Book'. This guide - to call it a survival guide would not be overstating it - was used from the 1940s through the 1960s to tell African Americans where to find safe and friendly petrol stations, hotels, restaurants and hospitals.
