|Chess in Cambridge: Jen Shahade Visits MIT [VIDEO]|
|February 7, 2013|
Last week, I visited Cambridge to guest lecture at the "MIT poker class." I talked about the parallels between chess and poker and what it's like to be a woman in both games. When I asked the class how many knew the rules of chess, more than half raised their hands and many were tournament players.
While in MIT, I also got a chance to meet with Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, a physicist post-doc at MIT and one of the founding members of Wuchess.
Though Wuchess is no longer around, RZA is still quite connected to chess-he supported February 2012 cover star, HHCF founder Adisa Banjoko's upcoming trip to Harvard.
On March 1, 2013 from 3:00-4:30 PM Adisa Banjoko will present a multimedia interactive workshop at Harvard, “Living The Game: The Powerful Fusion of Hip-Hop & Chess.”
