Traveling While Black is a 3D, 360-degree virtual reality documentary that immerses viewers in the long history of restricted movement for black Americans and the creation of safe spaces in our communities. First published in 1936, the Green Book was a survival guide that black travelers relied on to avoid brutal discrimination. It listed safe places that would fulfill their basic needs. In 1958, Ben and Virginia Ali's new restaurant, Ben's Chili Bowl, joined the list. Directed by Academy Award© winner Roger Ross Williams and executive produced by Bonnie Nelson Schwartz, a series based on Traveling While Black is being planned. The film invites viewers into an emotionally moving experience about race and restricted movement in America while sitting in an intimate booth at Ben's Chili Bowl.
