Man Hopes To Use Chess To Help Atlanta Youth

CBS Atlanta

ATLANTA (AP) — A former law officer is hoping that chess will help teach life lessons to Atlanta youth.

Orrin Hudson plans to set up a giant chessboard in the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta for an event from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday.

Hudson, a former chess champion, will take on multiple challengers simultaneously while teaching how the game can change the lives of at-risk young people.

Hudson is the founder and president of Be Someone Inc.

He will be at the World Congress Center, in Building C, as a part of this year’s “For Sisters Only” event.
