Genocide, Survivorship, and Reconciliation: A Conversation with Kizito Kalima

Please join us for a conversation with Kizito D. Kalima, the Founder and Executive Director of the Peace Center for Forgiveness & Reconciliation, a public speaker, and an advocate for genocide survivors.

The Kalima family was devastated by the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. Kizito will speak about his experience as a genocide survivor and how he approaches the process of reconciliation in the aftermath of atrocity. There will be a Q+A session during which attendees are invited to ask questions. The event will be followed by a book signing.

Moderated by Dr. Brigitte Stepanov, Assistant Professor, School of Modern Languages

This is a hybrid event, free and open to all.
