Diamond Shakoor a prodigy, a champion, a genius. The 12-year-old girl is one of the best chess players in the country. At close to 250 tournaments played, Diamond is a seven-time national champion. At age 8, she was the youngest African-American female to go undefeated in a Chess National competition.
No African-American female in competitive chess has ever broken a rating of 2,200. A “chess master” typically holds a rating of 2,500. Shakoor is hovering around 1,300. Great job Shakoor keep up the good work.
