A small crowd gathered in the Endicott school to watch The Queen of Katwe, a Disney movie based on the story of Phiona Mutesi and other children living in the slums of Uganda. Their lives are changed, and they lift themselves from their situation by learning and mastering chess. The real-life Mutesi and Benjamin Mukumbya, another of the story’s key characters, will be in Endicott and St. John March 9 to meet with students and the public to share their experiences March 9.

They will speak to younger students at Endicott at 9 a.m. and St. John at 10:50 a.m. followed by a session open to the public and high schoolers at 11:20 a.m. There will be lunch with the St. John chess club then back to Endicott for another public session at 2:30. They are expected to talk about their experiences and encourage other young people to improve their lives.
