Virtual Reality Exhibit “Traveling While Black” Opens In McLean

A virtual reality exhibit in McLean, Virginia, wants to let audiences feel some of the discomfort of racism in America in a new way. “Traveling While Black,” a virtual reality movie, is set in D.C. at Ben’s Chili Bowl, “a safe place for the Black community to stop and eat when they couldn’t before stop in other major restaurants and venues,” said Daniel Singh, the executive director of the McLean Community Center, where the show is opening on Wednesday. According to wtop.com, "As you watch the movie while wearing a virtual reality headset, it feels like you are at a table in the restaurant, with a 360-degree view. ”So you can look at the floor,” Singh said. “You can look at the ceiling and watch the fans swirling around.” And you can take part in conversations with people about their experiences with racism while traveling." As per wtop.com, "With the virtual reality headset on, you can’t separate from the movie in the way could with a normal movie. If you get uncomfortable, you can’t look away. “Traveling While Black” is open at The McLean Community Center and will run through Feb. 12. It’s free, but you need to make an appointment to try it."
