Help Hidden In Plain Site Grow Today!

After an amazing launch of Hidden in Plain Site: Richmond, the platform is growing in 2021! We're excited to announce our plans to officially expand Hidden In Plain Site to a national scale by bringing the future of cultural education to...

New Communities. New Stories.

Hidden history exists all around us no matter what monuments stand. The stories with the most pain are the most hidden. The most buried. We drive by them, we walk over them. In some cases we even park on them.

But if we squint, if we remember, we can change our paths and our patterns. Change how we see the city as we commute through it. With help, we can revere and learn from that which is Hidden In Plain Site.

What Is Hidden In Plain Site?

Hidden In Plain Site is a multimedia and VR exploration of distinct but easy to overlook sites around the United States that tells the story of the Black experience throughout history. Founded in Richmond, Virginia by a partnership of three social impact-minded entrepreneurs, the project's first installment, Hidden In Plain Site: Richmond, was launched on Thanksgiving Day, 2020.

Created with the goal of telling the stories of marginalized individuals and communities all over the United States, Hidden In Plain Site brings historical images taken from various angles and ages to impactful life through the use of modern 360-degree video and immersive media techniques. Our goal is to inform and educate while changing how residents and visitors see and experience our country.

Why Hidden In Plain Site?

Hidden In Plain Site exists to help illuminate the teachable past and challenge viewers to change their perspective and be curious about the history all around them. Through the clever use of archival imagery and current 360 degree video, Hidden In Plain Site tells stories with a powerful new platform that is: Authentic. Unfiltered. Empathy-Creating.
