On April 3, 2018, The Center for African Studies and Duquesne University are excited and proud to welcome Immaculee Ilibagiza to our campus and the City of Pittsburgh for the first time.
Immaculee is a survivor of the horrific 1994 TUTSI genocide in RWANDA that killed nearly 1 million people in just 100 days. Immaculee miraculously survived 91 days of the genocide while hiding in a 4 x 3 foot bathroom with 7 other women. When she was able to come out of hiding, she found her entire family brutally massacred. She was able to eventually use her Faith to find forgiveness for the killers of her family and friends. She has an inspiring testimony of faith and forgiveness, which sprung from her experience in the genocide.
Immaculee is the author of 3 books, including New York Times bestseller Left to Tell; Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust
Today, Immaculée is regarded as one of world's leading speakers on faith, hope and forgiveness. She has shared this universal message with world leaders, school children, multinational corporations, churches, and at events and conferences around the world, including a recent presentation to over 200,000 people in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
This is a free event but reserving your space with a ticket is highly encouraged.
Donations will be accepted at the door to cover operational costs.
The Duquesne University Barns & Nobel Book Store has purchased a bulk order of Left To Tell and can be purchased through their website! It will be $15.99 before the event. And at the event it will sell it at a flat $15.
