LARPing as W.E.B. Du Bois


Looking for a respite from the modern world? Take a whirl in “Virtual Harlem,” a virtual reality world designed by Bryan Carter, where you can live as avatars like Du Bois, frequenting the Apollo, the Savoy, and maybe even catching Ethel Waters’s debut of “Stormy Weather” at the Cotton Club.

You can find Charley Locke's journalism on WIRED, tweets @CHARLEY_LOCKE, and drawings on her parents' fridge. You can also sometimes spot Charley imperiously making book recommendations while managing the McSweeney's Pop-Up Shops. More from this author →
