“I Have a Dream.”

TIME Studios presents March Through Time, an all-new experience where we celebrate the life and legacy of Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Developed by members of the Fortnite Creative Community, this immersive journey allows players to witness Dr. Martin Luther King’s full “I Have a Dream” speech. 

Experience D.C. 63 

March Through Time will teleport players nearly 60 years in the past to a re-imagined Washington, DC called D.C. 63. Developed by members of the Fortnite Creative community, this fully immersive experience will allow players to witness the Civil Rights teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King. 

This experience was built by members ChaseJackman, GQUanoe, XWDFr, and YU7A. In D.C. 63, players will travel to the Lincoln Memorial and the United States National Mall where Dr. King made his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech.

The Experience will also feature museum-inspired points of interest and quests you can complete with other players. These quests should bring an important reminder that relates to Dr. King’s speech: We move forward when we work together.

Completing the Dr. King and Civil Rights movement challenges will unlock a D.C. 63 spray for your locker.

Inspired by the work of TIME and their partners — JuVee Productions, Digital Domain, V.A.L.I.S.studio, and Ryot — March Through Time would not have been possible without the contributions of American Family Insurance, the DuSable Museum of African American History, and the Estate of Martin Luther King, Jr.

For further in-depth reading and to educate yourself, family, or friends about the historic struggle for Civil Rights, please visit TIME’s The March website. We also hope this experience helps equip students to have meaningful discussions not only in the classroom, but in their personal lives as well. 

Civil Rights is a struggle we still fight for to this day, and it has benefited from the collective efforts of millions of people around the world. We hope the March Through Time  experience inspires the community to promote mutual respect and empathy towards all people no matter their race, religion, or orientation.
