In 2015, Latesha Williams founded the Cards For All People company along with her business partner. Black Card Revoked, a fun card game the tests the knowledge of Black Culture falls under the company’s umbrella of products. The game is super popular and quite entertaining to play.



And now, folks will have the chance to play a version of the game on live television.

Black Card Revoked, hosted by comedian Tony Rock, pairs contestants with celebrities for an opportunity to take home $10,000 thanks to their knowledge of Black history, milestones and cultural commonalities, Black Enterprise reports.

“For instance, they must debate the ideal time to make a to-go plate at the family cookout and identify the blackest type of drink at black affair,” the magazine article states.

The series, which premiered on BET last week, featured singer Sevyn Streeter and comedians Billy Sorrells and Slink Johnson.

“What I love about the game is that it’s damn near impossible to not bust out laughing at some point playing this game—whether you’re playing at home with your friends or you’re watching it on TV and you’re seeing how the contestants are playing the game,” the show’s host, comedian and actor Tony Rock, told Black Enterprise. “It’s just hilarious because there is going to be so much debate based on people’s answers.”

“Black Card Revoked” airs on Thursdays on BET at 10/9C.
