Immaculée Ilibagiza at Duquesne University
A Story of Faith, Hope and Forgiveness
On April 3, 2018, The Center for African Studies and Duquesne University will welcome Immaculée Ilibagiza to our campus and the City of Pittsburgh for a special presentation in the Duquesne Union Ballroom. In the Spirit of Duquesne, we have made this a FREE event that is open to public so we can hear first-hand Ilibagiza’s incredible story about faith, hope and the power of forgiveness.
Who is Immaculée Ilibagiza?
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.
Why are we crowdfunding?
We want the entire Duquesne and Pittsburgh communities to be able to attend this special event so we have made admission FREE. Your donation to this crowdfunding campaign will allow us to offset costs associated with this event, such as:
Hosting, lodging, transportation of Ilibagiza
Advertising to make as many people as possible aware of the event
Event fees: security, video screens
Post-event book signing and reception
Please donate today and join us on April 3!
