   1. Traveling While Black- Place yourself in a safe space when you journey over the road in the Emmy 
          Nominated “Traveling While Black".

      2. Becoming Homeless: A Human Experience- The Fundamental Attribution Error, as coined by Stanford          
          Psychologists, describes how we blame others when bad things happen to them, but blame the external 
          situations when bad things happen to us. There is a misconception that losing one's home is due to who you are 
          and the choices you make. Becoming Homeless: A Human Experience seeks to counter this irrational 
          tendency. In this immersive virtual reality experience from Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction 
          Lab, spend days in the life of someone who can no longer afford a home. Interact with your environment to 
          attempt to save your home and to protect yourself and your belongings as you walk in another’s shoes and face 
          the adversity of living with diminishing resources.

       3. We Wait- Sense the hearts of refugees as they travel across deep seas as shown in the BBC story “We Wait”
