‘So if I played 400 rounds of monopoly with you and I had to play and I had to give you every dime that I made, and then for 50 years, every time that I played, if you didn’t like it you got to burn it like they did in Tulsa and like they did in Rosewood, how can you win? How can you win?’ How We Can Win expands upon statements Kimberly Jones made in a viral video posted in June 2020 following the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police. Through her personal experience, observations and Monopoly analogy, she illuminates the economic disparities Black Americans have faced for generations and offers ways to fight against a system that is still rigged.
