Orrin Hudson, founder of the Atlanta-based Be Someone non-profit organization, will bring his life-sized chess board and special chess instructional skills to the Lithonia Stonecrest Library, Saturday, November 15, 10am – 1pm. The event is free and open to the public, and his purpose is to teach young people how to be better decision makers in the game of chess… and in the game of life. He will also encourage racial unity within the community.Hudson has been using his unique K.A.S.H. formula (Knowledge, Attitude, Skills, and Habits) to make a difference in young lives for the past 15 years. Once an at-risk teen himself, Hudson turned his life around thanks to an instructor who used the game of chess to teach him critical life lessons. He is now on a mission to pay back and reach young people who may face risks of their own.

“I’ve learned that you have critical choices to make on the chess board. One wrong move and you lose,” he stresses. “But life is not a game. A wrong move there and you could be finished. My goal is to teach that lesson to as many young people as I can through this wonderful game.”

“This could be the best time investment parents can make if they will bring their children to both learn a new skill and to watch as I incorporate key messages into the learning experience,” he emphasizes.
