COVER STORY
20 Winning the Game of Life

What Jackie Robinson did for baseball and Ed Dwight did for space exploration, Barack Obama has done for politics.  Yet, looking at life in America as a card game, many Blacks still believe that American society has stacked the deck against them.  We explore some of the issues that many Blacks say attack their strategies to win and some of the playing strategies Blacks can use to transform a losing hand into a winning one.
