A Knight Without A Castle is a powerful story by Robert Katende, the inspiring coach and mentor celebrated in Disney® movie, The Queen of Katwe, a film about the real life story of a young Ugandan girl (Phiona Mutesi) who's life is changed forever when she discovers she has an amazing talent for chess
A Knight Without A Castle gives readers a first-hand account of how it all started, including a window into the the life of the man behind Phiona Mutesi’s world-renown accomplishments.
This powerful story is presented in two parts. First from Robert's perspective — war refugee turned missionary living the improbable dream to empower kids in Ugandan slums through chess — a game so foreign there is no word for it in their native language. And then by debut author Nathan Kiwere—presenting heartfelt testimonies from Katende’s students.
