Fortnite Is Now Educating Your Children about Martin Luther King Jr.



Today in "I know, I know, but read the entire thing", Sony is meeting the youth where they are. If they can't go to school to learn about a sanitized version of a man who challenged the fabric of America, they can do it in the game.

You know, gaming, that paragon of social justice!

Now, MLK is not a playable character or a skin (Oh god do not imagine that) - Your character will teleport to 60 years ago , to 'allow players to witness the Civil Rights teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King. '

The video shows a pink woman watching the I Have A Dream Speech.

No word on if it will teach children about Letters From A Birmingham Jail.
