How We Can Win

How We Can Win: Race, History and Changing the Money Game That’s Rigged

Kimberly Jones

A breakdown of the economic and social injustices facing Black people and other marginalised citizens, inspired by political activist Kimberly Jones’ viral video.

‘So if I played 400 rounds of Monopoly with you and I had to play and give you every dime that I made, and then for 50 years, every time that I played, if you didn’t like what I did, 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 will expand upon statements Kimberly Jones made in a viral video posted in June 2020 following the murder of George Floyd at the hands of 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.

Praise for Kimberly Jones
andHow We Can Win

‘Kimberly Jones hits as hard as Serena Williams and has the intellectual range of Angela Davis. How We Can Win is genius—written with the cadence of hip-hop and the intellectual energy of jazz. Jones understands the relationship between America’s streets and its boardrooms, and she delivers her lessons with heart, nuance and a complexity that belie the simplicity of her prose. This book is both a praise song for Black life and a manual for humanity.’

How We Can Win teaches us that we will not be free until we change the systems that oppress Black people, not out of revenge, but by understanding our history and taking collective action.’
