Featured in the Chicago Tribune, VICE News, and NPR, players are dealt five cards featuring famous figures, and compete to convince one another who holds the “Blackest” card. With each ensuing hand, players dig deeper into the dynamics and complexities of race – Blackness in particular. remember the rules are simple...the discussions won't be.
