About Bid Whist

During slavery, plantation owners forbade slaves from learning to read and write for fear that written communications would lead to uprisings and revolts. However slave owners needed slaves to be able to count in order to keep better track of the cotton harvests. As a result slaves were allowed to play cards. Slaves put their own spin on the game and Bid Whist lives on today. The game as we know it today is the form of the game popularized by Black Pullman porters from 1867 until the 1920's.
