Fantastic New York Times article in the Sunday Edition of the Times for Sunday the 13th of 2011

Well written piece by Dylan Loeb McClain in the times...
`
A fascinating look at just how difficult it is to achieve mastership for young people but with an emphasis upon the African American community. Very informative and factual... nice interview snippets with the only African American Grandmaster, the extremely popular Maurice Ashley.

While reading the article I found out that the youngest master is below the age of ten now... amazing! To make master at any age is quite the achievement but at that age? Amazing... the only word for it, really.

Anyways you should "check" out the article yourself at:
