“The Footsteps to Freedom/Black Voice Foundation work is important to keep history engaging and impactful for teachers and the hundreds of thousands of students they represent. These organizations truly understand the enormous potential of integrating augmented reality for history tours and traveling empathy exhibits.” – Silverrstieen.

“ImagineAR is an advanced digital immersive communication platform which will deliver the impact of our work in historical empathy with next-generation mobile experiences. We are expecting to introduce this AR program to over 50 school districts and over 1 million students in Southern California (San Bernardino, Riverside, and Los Angeles counties). We are truly excited to integrate AR into our exhibits and Underground Railroad tours.” – Hardy Brown II, Managing Principal of Footsteps to Freedom and Chairman of the Black Voice Foundation.
“After learning of the 24-year track record of Footsteps to Freedom and the Underground Railroad tours for teachers, we knew that becoming a national sponsor would be a great addition to bring history to life with mobile augmented reality for the next generation.” – Silverrstieen.
