Goodies: Black Legacy Chess Set
Written by Danny P Ocean on July 24, 2012
Do you have $12,000 to spend on a chess set? If you do this is probably the set for you. A special hand-crafted set that displays famous African-Americans from yesterday and today.
Lisa Matthews handcrafted this remarkable chess board that features some of the most profound figures in Black history on a chess set. This particular chess set is divided into the “Radical” and “Non Violent” sides with Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr as the “kings” of their respective sides. It’s a one of a kind piece that was commissioned but Matthews offers to do the same for any buyer.
