No. 135: Queen of Katwe

Last year, I wrote about my frustration with the difficult time I was having finding a movie about a black princess that my daughter could watch.

As you can imagine, when I saw that Disney was coming out with a movie called Queen of Katwe, I was thrilled.

When I finally watched the trailer, I was further surprised to see what the content was about. You’ll have to check out the trailer to know what I’m talking about.

Kudos to Disney for telling a different story. As time progresses, I look forward to Disney exploring more of Africa’s history and telling her stories.
