Fellowship of Door County. This is an inspiring family friendly true story of Phiona Mutesi, a 10-year-old girl living in the slums of Kampala, Uganda. The movie captures the hardness of homeless living as well as strong themes of empathy, humility, integrity, perseverance, strategic thinking, and teamwork. Phiona is introduced to the game of chess by a missionary and becomes fascinated with the game. Chess becomes a means for her and her family to escape from a life of poverty. Madina Nalwanga won the Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Young Actor in 2017. Join the Racial Justice Action Team in viewing this remarkable story and sharing in a meaningful discussion.
