Hip-Hop Chess Federation on Allhiphop.com! May 14th Event Announced!!
Casual from Hieroglyphics, Zion I, T-Kash, pro-skater Jordan Richter and others will be special guests at the chess tournament, which will also host a Life Strategies panel prior to the start of the Chess matches.
“Rappers, skaters and chess players from all over are coming together once again to help the streets gain peace” said HHCF founder Adisa Banjoko. “The economy has been tough on our organization in recent years. That’s why I’m thankful to everybody involved in making this event happen. Gang violence, bullying, alcohol and drug abuse among young people is still a very real problem. We want to show them the benefits of reinforcing their dreams with serious focus and a consistent work ethic.”
Jordan Richter will also give a skate exhibition while teaching teens about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, the All Tribes Universal Zulu Nation will host a B-Boying workshop for young buys and girls.
Members of the HHCF Jiu Jitsu teams will close out the day with tactics and exhibition matches, in addition to a discussion about bullying.
The HHCF's Spring Classic takes place on May 14th at the Alum Rock Youth Center in San
"The body is the house of the spirit, while the mind is its antennae. By exercising both vigorously, we contact the infinite which is our true home in the universe," said Zumbi of Zion I.
