TIME: 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

KNIGHTS TO KINGS

Seeing yourself in a new perspective can change your world. Knights to Kings is an inspiring tale of two countries, two cultures, and the rebirth of one community. Using the game of Chess as a symbol of life teaches young men to think before they move.

This film documents a journey of self-discovery through the exposure to their heritage. These powerful bonds created a community that welcomed them back home and beckon us all to return.

Gaining a new perspective through experiences births confidence to step outside of their comfort zone. A deeper love of friendship and brotherhood bonds two worlds; creating a connection that inspired their growth from young boys, into young men. From Knights to Kings.   


Moderated by: Dr. Carolyn Cooper,  Author and Educator.
