Black Chess Matters!

The Preptorial Foundation's Founders have supported Chess programs in inner city schools since the 1960's! We are thrilled to see a new generation of African American Chess Students, Masters, Coaches, GrandMasters and Teachers! It has long been known that Chess directly influences players to succeed in many other areas of life, from financial success to advanced studies in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and many others. Check out our programs here, join our community, FREE, and become a Certified Chess Coach at no cost. If you wish, you can also support our efforts to expand Chess programs for the needy and underprivileged of all races and sexes in both physical and online clubs and schools!
