A KING IN PARADISE is a multi-dimensional project that is inspired by the untold journey of Dr. King’s five days in Hawaii during September 1959. The project will link the work of civil rights era freedom fighters like Dr. King to the current, youth driven social justice movements. The goal is to deliver stories that speak to Afro-futurism in a way that is informed by history, but deeply rooted in the values of today.
A KING IN PARADISE Virtual Gallery Exhibit
A King in Paradise Virtual Gallery Exhibit fully immerses the audience in the stories as they come to life through the wonders of Virtual Reality (VR).
Our VR Team has built an art gallery to host these stories from Black folks in Hawaii. Guest eventually will be able to visit this gallery via VR Headset (VR) or via their laptops/phones (AR). Each of the corners of the room will be dedicated to (3) major locations that MLK visited in 1959.
WHAT IS A KING IN PARADISE UP TO CURRENTLY?
Our Mission is to promote cross-generational understanding of Black History and our current Black Lives Moment. Each element of the project tackles that in different ways. Currently, we are producing the VR Traveling Exhibit that expands the notion of Black Humanity and developing the TV Special that tells the story of Dr. King’s 5-days in Hawaii during 1959.
