April 7, 1994 marked the beginning of about 100 days of horror in Rwanda. Over this time period, 800,000 members of the Tutsi ethnic group, along with some moderate Hutu sympathizers, were systematically identified, chased and slaughtered by an extremist Hutu regime, its militias and countless civilian collaborators. In the wake of this synchronized killing campaign, Rwandans began the journey to rebuild and re-imagine a unified identity. Join us for a panel discussion re-assessing the history of the genocide and Rwanda’s journey in the aftermath of these tragic events.
