About the Code Black Group

Why is Code Black called Code Black? We are using the power of technology to study exploitation and inequality (and African Americans in particular). Code Black Group is intent on preparing people of all races (though with a focus on African Americans) to make their way through capitalism and to inform about race and class issues as well as health and political issues in a fun and interactive way.
