Inspired by the 1967 summit of prominent Black athletes who met to question Muhammad Ali about his conscientious objection to military service, this virtual project is a collaboration between playwright Idris Goodwin, director Robert Barry Fleming, and the extended reality storytellers and immersive artists of Crux Cooperative.
This work was supported by a Building Demand for the Arts grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
Detailed instructions to access in VR and on your computer will be provided in your confirmation email.
