It wasn't all bad

Massachusetts man creates card game to celebrate Black history

Dominique Price has played a lot of games with his family during the pandemic — including one that he created to get people talking about Black culture and history.

The Worcester, Massachusetts, resident was inspired to make BlackedOut Game after discussing the Black Lives Matter movement. Price told NBC Boston his younger cousins didn't know anything "Black culture related," and he wanted to remedy that by creating an educational card game that goes "deep" into Black history.

The game has six categories, and as people play, they learn facts about Black history and culture that are often overlooked. Price has started a Kickstarter in the hopes of getting his game out into the world, where it can spark conversations. "I just want people to have fun, get together with your family and friends, learn about Black culture, learn about Black history, and forget about color," he said.
