Fortnite will be showing We The People, a "series of conversations that advance the dialogue around race in America with prominent BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) voices in business, sports, media, music, and entertainment," this Saturday, July 4, in its Party Royale mode. Presented by ØPUS UNITED, We The People will have its first showing on Saturday, July 4, at 6:46am PT/9:46am ET/2pm BST, and it will re-air every other hour for the 24 hours following the first show. We The People is hosted by CNN's Van Jones, and will feature such guests as former Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue Elaine Welteroth, The Atlantic's Jemele Hill, rapper/songwriter/visionary Killer Mike, and hip hop musician Lil Baby.
Jones and each guest will be "speaking about how to change systemic racism in media, culture, and entertainment." To be part of this discussion, make sure to launch Fortnite before the showing you wish to join. Players will need to start the Battle Royale game mode, enter the Party Royale playlist, and then head to the Island's Big Screen. We The People appearing in Fortnite's Party Royale mode is another special event that follows showings of Christopher Nolan's films Batman Begins, Inception, and The Prestige, as well as an immersive Travis Scott concert/experience.
