About the Book

In life all types of games are played. From the moment we are born as children we are conditioned to playing games, from hide-and-seek and hopscotch to Junior Pro football and Little League baseball. As we reach adolescence and continue to adulthood, the games continue. There are dating games in male-female relationships to the vicious games played in corporate America. The following statement is dually true for African Americans. For the games we are playing are often times used against us and as tools for our oppression and control in this society. The purpose of this book is to analyze and take a look at all the various games that are played in our lives. It is out of looking at all the different types of games that are played in our lives, that the book is purposely entitled, It’s All A Game. It is hoped by analyzing these games that we learn about these games such that we can win the game as a people.

And now without further hesitation, let the game begin!
