Activist speaks on Rwanda
Friday, June 25, 2010
Mathilde Mukantabana came to campus in April to speak on how Rwandans are rebuilding their lives and communities in the wake of the 1994 genocide in the central African nation where an estimated 800,000 died. In an effort to recover, Rwanda has become a model for developing nations and is considered by some to be Africa’s biggest success story. Mukantabana was born and reared in Rwanda and is president of the Friends of Rwanda Association and professor of history at Cosumnes River College in Sacramento, Calif. The Department of Communication Studies, Women’s Action, Women’s Center and the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education sponsored her visit.
