Rwanda at 25

December 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Twenty-five years after more than one million people were murdered in one of the 20th century’s most brutal and shocking genocides, Dickinson College will host a panel discussion on Rwanda’s remarkable recovery and success in the years following the tragedy. The panel discussion, “Rwanda at 25,” will take place Monday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. in the Anita Tuvin Schlechter (ATS) Auditorium, 360 W. Louther St. The event is free and open to the public.
In the words of Rwandan President Paul Kagame: “In 1994 there was no hope, only darkness. Today, light radiates from this place. How did it happen? Rwanda became a family again.” The 100 days of torture that marked the Rwandan genocide are thought of as one of the darkest chapters in recent history, yet the recovery process has made Rwanda a stronger nation than before. Panelists will discuss this new Rwandan “family,” how Rwanda achieved this remarkable recovery and what we can all learn from its successes in recent years.
