Karanja Crews, a high school teacher in Jefferson Oregon, created a board game workshop to help his students learn black history, reading, writing, philosophy, and a slew of other subjects, all while having fun. The game  is called Journey to Freedom: The Power to Read and Write. Like school, the competition is the game itself, not the other players.

Unlike other “educational” board games, this one is a fully-developed integrated part of an entire curriculum. Crews is trying to use the game to found an institution called Speak for Life.
