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.
