Black History Playing Cards

(145 customer reviews)


These are NOT your average playing cards! Yes they are printed on high-quality poker quality stock, yes they feature all 52 cards PLUS two customer Joker cards BUT they also feature Black history facts and quotes to educate and inspire. They feature Adinkra symbols from Ghana to replace the traditional suits! Pull these out and amaze!

    This is a gift for my 19 year old son for Christmas. I thought this will be a very unique gift for him. He can learn more about his Ghanaian and African American heritage.
    I received my product in exactly a week after the order was placed.

    This is the best by far, there is so much information! Gives great and correct information about each person or place or time. I have four young lady’s and the volume 2 Queens is so helpful for them to understand that they can and will make a difference. I really enjoy vol 4 before 1492. It is a great starting to learn more. With the children out of school every household should have these. They should have these in every classroom. Thank you.

    These cards were a hit with my kids, we played I Declare War with them and had to read the historical facts on the cards before showing our card. It was fun and educational. I will have them do further research on the topics provided as part of the game next time! This is my 2nd pack purchase from Urban Intellectuals! Great product!
