Some Harlem youngsters could not wait to get to school to get their Chess game on! It is truly a wonderful thing to see black youth competing against one another where they have to use their brains and strategy; this will help them to cope with conflict resolution and may allow them to become critical thinkers of the environment and world that they live in.

Not too long ago I had a conversation with a couple of people about the origins of Chess. I mentioned that the game had its origins in Kemet/Egypt. Of course at that time it was not named Chess, it was called Senet. What I find very interesting is when you look at the Senate in the political arena everyone is fighting for position in the playing field/board of life!
