Community activist Orrin Hudson teaches Black youth to make better decisions in life through the game of chess; delivers national mind-blowing message through popular YouTube video.

Orrin Hudson, a motivational speaker, community activist, and chessmaster, is using YouTube to inspire Black youth to make better decisions in life through the game of chess. The professionally filmed video reveals his awe-inspiring master plan to reach 1 million youngsters in 50 states.

Hudson, who has been featured on Fox News, Good Morning America, CNN, and in People Magazine, runs a nationally-recognized non-profit organization in Atlanta, Georgia called Be Someone.

Be Someone uses numerous tools, including the game of chess, to promote self-esteem, responsibility, and analytical thinking among at-risk kids. The mission is to build character, hope, and inspiration so that kids can set and achieve lifetime goals, realize their full potential, and be someone.

Hudson comments, "This is less about chess and more about building character. Love, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, Patience, are 5 character traits that are essential to success. If we have the brightest children in the world and they don't have character, the schools have failed them and this nation has failed them. Really Be Someone is priceless. After all it is the moral development of the whole child that will determine their success in life."

Hudson, who is a former Alabama state trooper, founded Be Someone in 2001. Since then, he's also authored a book entitled "Making Every Move Count" which refers to the belief that success in chess and success in life require the same fundamentals, including concentration, self-esteem, problem solving skills, and discipline.
