Immaculée Ilibagiza will share her story of Faith, Hope and Forgiveness

Duquesne University and the Center for African Studies is proud to welcome special guest Immaculée Ilibagiza to 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.

While attendance is free, an RSVP is required.
