    The correspondence regarding the order was good as was the shipping notifications. I received the cards yesterday. It was a pleasant ordering experience.

    I love the flashcards! I got them for my 4 year old nephew! I’ll be ordering more soon!

    • Urban Intellectuals Admin (store manager)

      Awesome Robert, let us know if you need anything!

  3. Maria H. (verified owner)

    These cards are good, but even as I learned new things I knew there were people missing.
    You could do a set of Civil Rights cards.
    Black Panther.
    Medical Advancements..
    And then I wonder how we’ve been a people to erase and I get angry

    • Urban Intellectuals Admin (store manager)

      Thanks Maria, absolutely. We are growing our product lines to try and get coverage as far and wide as possible. We see the cards as the open door to walk through into the mansion of knowledge!

    All is can say is ‘Awesome’ – these cards have helped put names to faces and vice versa to those prolific figures in our history who’s stories seldom get told. My daughter came home from school one day excited, she lit up as she spoke about being able to put her hand up during a black history talk and educate her class and teacher – ALL due to what she read on these flash cards.

    I have since ordered two more packs and cannot wait for them to arrive.

    We reside in the UK and the school system is a joke when it comes to African Caribbean + history. It is SO important that we make this wealth of knowledge readily available for our future leaders and trail blazers. These hero’s, our foundation need to be highlighted.

    Thank YOU all at Urban Intellectuals for making learning fun yet informative.

    Bless you all… #ISeeYou🙌🏾💫

    • Urban Intellectuals Admin (store manager)

      WOW, Yvonne, we LOVE hearing about the impact our cards have on people, especially our young queens and kings! THANK YOU!!!!

    Cards have great information, but I just wish they were larger (more like index card sized) because these are too little for me and especially for the price.

    These cards are fabulous! One of my goals this year is to learn more about black history, racism and white privilege, and have discussions about those issues with my kids. Having the cards out on the kitchen table has sparked some great conversations and admiration for the amazing people on the cards. Thank you!

    I was happy to receive the flashcards so quickly. I reviewed Volumes 1. I can’t wait to share it with my grandkids. While reviewing, I learned about events and people that were never shared with me in school. I’m looking forward to purchasing the other sets to add to my collection. Every child should know what amazing things their ancestors did to contribute to the world in which we live. Thanks for all you do to enhance our knowledge.

  147. Myra (verified owner)

    A little disappointed by the small size. I think including the size in description is one thing. However, placing an object next to the deck to provide perspective would be helpful. But I’m sure the cost is a factor in the development, but the surprise was just that.
    I was excited with the fast delivery time and the follow-up email is great also. Being an AA company is as a bonus.

    Keep up the good work great concept.

  149. Michelle Cartier-Barnes (verified owner)

    I thought I knew my Black History, but not so. These cards are worth more than their cost, in information alone. There are several people in the two volumes I purchased that I had no idea about or knew existed. I will definitely recommend these to my family and friends, and will give them as a gift. Also, I’ll be deep in research. Thanks Urban Intellectuals.
