Finding the Good – Rwanda’s Pathways Back to Trust by Carl Wilkens

November 4, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm SAST

Finding the Good-Rwanda’s Pathways Back to Trust by Carl-Wilkens CTHGC

Finding the Good – Rwanda’s Pathways Back to Trust

Carl Wilkens will share about recent visits to Rwanda as well his personal stories from the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. The “firing” of new brain pathways and our ability to reframe the “other” are some of the powerful tools and practices he has learned from survivors, perpetrators, and his own journey.

Carl Wilkens is the only American who chose to stay in Kigali, Rwanda throughout the 1994 genocide. He and his Rwandan colleagues worked together to save the lives of hundreds. His harrowing yet hopeful journey weaves together stories of tremendous risk and fierce compassion in the midst of slaughter. Each year he returns to Rwanda with students and educators to see for themselves how people are working together to rebuild their country and rebuild trust.
