Immaculee Ilibagiza: A Story of Faith, Hope and Forgiveness
- 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
- Union Ballroom (4th Floor of the Union)
Duquesne University and the Center for African Studies is proud to welcome special guest Immaculée Ilibagiza to our campus for a powerful presentation.
For three terrifying months during the horrific 1994 Tutsi genocide in Rwanda, Ilibagiza and seven other women hid for their lives in the tiny, secret bathroom of a local minister. During that time, an estimated 800,000 people—including nearly all of Ilibagiza's family—were brutally murdered.
Ilibagiza not only survived the genocide, but emerged as a fierce advocate for peace and reconciliation. She has published several books, including the New York Times best-selling Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust.
Join us for this free event, and hear first-hand Ilibagiza's incredible story about the power of forgiveness.
