Robert Katende Event Registration
Join Hampton Roads Chess Association for a special night with Robert Katende. Robert was made famous when Disney made the true story of his chess program in a Ugandan slum, and in particular the rise of Phiona Mutesi, into the movie Queen of Katwe. We will be watching the film during a simultaneous exhibition with Mr. Katende.
