Fortnite is hoping to combine fun and education with their newest in-game exhibit.

According to multiple news outlets, the online video game’s new March Through Time interactive experience pays homage to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his social justice efforts.

The exhibit offers an “immersive journey” through an area called “D.C. 63,” which is “a reimagined DC” set back in the 60s during the Civil Rights movement.

Players will have the opportunity to travel to various tourist sites, including the Lincoln Memorial and the National Mall, where they will be able to hear MLK’s 17-minute “I Have a Dream” speech.

While the new MLK-inspired viagra for her in-game exhibit honors the late activist, the Coretta Scott King-founded Martin Luther King Jr. Center made it a point to clarify that they were “not involved” in Epic’s decisions.
