When: Thursday, March 14, 2019 at 6 PM – 8:30 PM

Location: Fort Washington Collegiate Church 729 W 181st St, New York, New York 10033


The issue of traveling while black endures as stinging commentary on American society, whether in the Oscar-winning film “The Green Book” or the January article by Times senior editorial writer Brent Staples.

Join us for a screening of the immersive virtual reality film “Traveling While Black,” directed by Roger Ross Williams and made in collaboration with Felix & Paul Studios and Oculus. Then, a discussion between Dr. Staples and Marcia Fingal, chief outreach officer and global impact program manager of Intersections International. They will be joined by Reverend Dr. Damaris D. Whittaker, senior minister at Fort Washington Collegiate Church. Continue the conversation afterward at the event’s reception.

The film is presented by Op-Docs, The New York Times Opinion section’s series of award-winning short documentaries.
