Event Details

On April 3, 2018, The Center for African Studies and Duquesne University are excited and proud to welcome Immaculée Ilibagiza to our campus and the City of Pittsburgh for the first time.

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 special event, and hear first-hand Ilibagiza’s incredible story about faith, hope and the power of forgiveness.

Please RSVP for this free event.
