The Illinois State University Black Colleagues Association is hosting a virtual game night from 7-9 p.m. Friday as a way to close out Black History Month on a fun and interactive note.
Rachel Gregoire, ISU alumna and founder and CEO of Fam Foolery, Inc. — a company designed to encourage inclusivity and promote the importance of cultural recognition through gamification — will be a featured guest at the event as she engages with participants through rounds of trivia focused on Black history.
Gregoire realized early on in her career that there was a lack of representation within the gaming industry, so she took it upon herself to create the popular card game Trap Wars and through doing so has generated a way to promote intercultural education, strengthen relationships and start important conversations surrounding Black history and current events.
To continue pushing the positivity that Gregoire aims to spread through her game, everyone that participates in the event will leave a winner regardless of their success in answering the trivia questions correctly.
The event is free to attend but those who are interested must register by Wednesday in order to be sent the Zoom invitation. Early registration is highly encouraged as space is limited.
