Meet Paris White of The Urban Legend Series

Today we’d like to introduce you to Paris White.

Hi Paris, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
As an African American author and educational board game designer born and raised in Washington, D.C, I understand the academic struggles and hardships plaguing our communities. I am working diligently to build a company that represents, educates, and gives back to the African American family. The Board Games, Books, and Trivia Cards I designed are Fun, Interactive, Educational, and Great Family Fun for ages 4 and up. At the same time, they reflect a rich tapestry of African American Culture and History.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been fairly smooth?
My journey has been blessed. I am meeting great people who believe in my company’s mission to bring our communities products that are fun and educational. In the beginning, I had to find my voice to articulate the great benefits and the creative process that went into creating The Urban Legend Series. Soon after, I was able to approach businesses with my products and get them into stores. Not every attempt was successful, and some stores directed me elsewhere or other avenues to sell my products. All are still very helpful and informative. The next issue was inventory. Once I was able to turn a profit. The money I profited from was put back into the business to keep ahead of supply and demand.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about The Urban Legend Series?
Our company’s vision is to bring families back together with games and books that encourage family bonding, social activities, and learning. THE URBAN LEGEND SERIES intelligently ties the books, board games, and trivia cards together for one enjoyable experience. A Storybook turned into a board game that can incorporate trivia cards to add more educational value. THE URBAN LEGEND SERIES understands the importance of education with the proper representation of our history and culture and its development over time. Our company sees the lack of inclusion of historical facts and the great contributions of the black people in this country and around the world. Our company seeks to bring joy, enlighten, and educate anyone of any race or background with games and books highlighting the black culture and its effect on the world and people around us. It is our pleasure to share the talents, vision, and creative hands that went into developing a truly unique gaming and educational concept.

What changes are you expecting over the next 5-10 years?
In the next 5 to ten years, I hope to have all four books, board games, and decks of trivia cards released. As well as any expansion games, like The Urban Legend New York or California. A peer-to-peer app so you can play with your friends wherever they are via electronic device. Finally, a cartoon series or movie about The Urban Legend.

Pricing:

  • The Urban Legend Summer Adventures book is $18
  • The Urban Legend Summer Adventures Board Game is $35
  • Legendary Trivia Cards: African American Top 10 $15.oo
