Introducing world’s greatest Black History Playing Cards

♦ 

Imagine walking into the barbecue with good music playing, your Uncle on the grill (maybe with socks and sandals), people dancing, laughing, having a good time, and the children are playing. The Spades players are beginning to gather as you hear the call to action:

WHO WANTS TO BUSS SOME SPADES!?!

But you have a surprise for them.

You reach into your pocket and drop these Black History Playing Cards by Urban Intellectuals on the table and everyone’s eyes light up. You just took things to the next level and folks will be talking about this experience for the rest of the year.

Urban Intellectuals makes it fun and easy to learn Black History and we just created a game changer, our reimagined Black History Playing Cards with facts and quotes embedded inside.

Combating Negative Images of Black People

At the core of our Black History Playing Cards is the pushing back of negative stereotypes of the Black community. The world inundates us with images of drug dealers, violence, lack of education, motivation as a people. 

But we know we are far more than that and we work to remind ourselves every chance we get. Every single chance we get, we push back on these negative narratives on our community. This includes during the all important Spades matches!

What makes these cards so special?

We are glad you asked because as you can see, these are not your typical playing cards with boring images of people that look nothing like you, nor represent anything about your history and culture.

THESE ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!!

Yes, there are 52 playing cards, 2 jokers, the four basic suits, and they are standard poker-sized playing cards, but that is where the similarities end. Let’s go deeper.

Box & Back of Cards

They include a wonderful metallic glow to them that represents the excellence of the global Black community. The inclusion of the Sankofa bird is a constant reminder to us to bring out history with us into the future.

Beautiful Illustrations

When you open the deck you will notice the facecards have a beautiful, professional illustration to them giving very powerful images of Black history and excellence to motivate and inspire you.

R

Big & Little Jokers

Another strong detail of this deck features Mother Africa and the African Diaspora as the Jokers, but which one is the Big and Little? We’ve left that up to you to decide.

Suit Categories

 We didn’t just stop with well designed playing cards, we put some thought into this. Each suit represents a special theme.

  • SPADES – Represents Contemporary 
  • HEARTS – Represents Civil Rights 
  • DIAMONDS – Represent Dynasties
  • CLUBS – Represents Revolts (OUR FAVORITE SUIT)

♦ 

But we didn’t stop there!!!

The Number Cards

We took things a step further with the number cards and embedded facts and quotes into each one. That’s right! The 2 through 10 of each suit has a different fact or quote about their respective themes. This allows adults and children to not only learn about individuals inside of each of these themes, but to gather knowledge about their life and contributions to the global African community.
