About Fortnite – March through Time
March through time teleports us: inside to D.C. ’63, a redesigned version of Washington, D.C. Designed by ChaseJackman, GQuanoe, XWDFr and YU7A, it allows a trip to the Lincoln Memorial and the United States National Mall, where Dr. King gave his famous 17-minute speech on civil rights. The experience extends with museum-inspired points of interest, and collaborative mini-game quests you complete with others. These activities progress we through the experience and bring to life important themes of Dr. King’s speech: we move forward when we work together. Completing the challenges related to Dr. King and the Civil Rights movement will unlock a D.C. 63 spray for your Locker.
March through time was inspired by the work of TIME and its partners – JuVee Productions, Digital Domain, VALISstudio and Ryot – and is only possible thanks to the help of American Family Insurance, the DuSable Museum of African American History and Martin’s estate Luther King Jr. More on the topic and information about the history of the struggle for civil rights can be found on the TIME website “The March”.
The ongoing struggle for civil rights is a global movement that depends on the collective efforts of millions of people around the world. Using the hashtag # FNDC63, those interested can tell their stories on Twitter, Instagram and Tiktok, how they were told by Dr. King, D.C. ’63 or someone in their life.
