Since its creation by Cards For All People in 2015, Black Card Revoked
has set social media on fire and quickly become a fixture at home
parties. Although the African American experience is far from monolithic,
the game is a lighthearted nod to the shared commonalities of Black
life in America. If you know the answer to questions like "How many
fights did the Fresh Prince get into before his mom got scared?", your
metaphorical ‘Black Card' will stay intact ("1 little fight," of
course). But if you've never seen The Color Purple or Friday,
you might get your card snatched!
As a witty celebration of African American life, "BLACK CARD REVOKED"
will appeal to all lovers of Black culture, bringing together viewers
from diverse walks of life for a fun night of laughter and spirited
debate. Each 30-minute episode will feature three (3) teams - each with
a celebrity and contestant partner - answering questions about universal
pop culture and historical moments, viewed through the African American
lens. The teams will square off and put their figurative ‘Black Cards'
on the line for a chance to win up to $10,000.
"BLACK CARD REVOKED" was brought to BET by David A. Hurwitz, who will
serve as Executive Producer for Alternative Productions, Inc. under his
Bill's Market & Television Productions banner. The original creators of
the popular party game, Latesha Williams and Jay Bobo, will serve as
