The XR Equity & Diversity Playbook was constructed for libraries to explore how to use virtual reality (VR) and discuss equity and diversity through an “immersive experience.” VR is an immersive medium through which one can experience how it is to “walk” in another person’s shoes or “see” through their eyes. Therefore, it is a perfect medium to build empathy and create understanding between diverse people and cultures. Hear about community “lost stories”: Witness the world through a blind person’s eyes in “Notes on Blindness,” or understand the hurdles an African American would have encountered in 1960s‘America in “Travelling While Black.”
