“One of my favorite board games is Monopoly. It’s a system that most drug dealers and gang member know very well. They made a lot of money by monopolizing the neighborhoods.”

Those are the words of Alphonza Mabry, founder of the nonprofit Future First Monopoly Network, which uses the Monopoly system as an option to make money legally. Mabry said he started the organization, “Because I wanted to erase the excuse of having no solutions or options for ex-drug dealers and gang members.”

Mabry told The Chronicle about an online video he did showing himself dealing with the daily struggle of being a black man. He was being followed and stopped by a policeman that didn’t believe he owned property in Trinity, N.C. Mabry did own the property. The video went viral, and landed him an appearance on Steve Harvey’s TV show.

This past November, Mabry was a presenter at the 2016 Corner 2 Corner Drug Dealers and Street Life Conference organized by Union Baptist Church in Winston-Salem. He shared information on financial education and his testimony on facing 25 years to life in prison on drug charges.

Today Mabry is a God-fearing man and member of Evangel Fellowship Church of God in Greensboro. He has a successful business and is a family man.
