HHCF Looks Back At the Power of the Queen



Queen Latifah is amazing for so many reasons. But long before she was embraced by mainstream TV, she was one of the coldest female MC's I ever saw...She still is to be honest. Here is one of my favorites. This song is actually sampled from Miles Davis Tutu album...

The Birds Opening, never saw this one...

The 2 Knights Opening

The HHCF wants to share a glimpse of reality




I try to tell people the HHCF is not for everybody. If you want to be a show off chess guy who wants to brag about ratings and your favorite opening all day- we don't want you. If you care about people from all walks of life and you are willing to learn from people totally unlike you- welcome.

Above is a clip from my daily walk to and from the school I work at in San Francisco. The area is plagued with poverty, hunger and homelessness. Nevertheless a lot of kids with good hearts brave these streets everyday to get an education. Its not easy, but it must be done...This is the first of a series...We do this to show you exactly who we serve. More soon.
