Rwanda Genocide Survivor To Speak At TTU

A survivor of the genocide in Rwanda will be speaking at Tennessee Tech later this month. Immaculée Ilibagiza brings her story to Tech for a March 16th discussion of her survival and faith. This Center Stage event, presented by TTU’s Commission on the Status of Women, is free and open to the public. The event is one of a series of events being held on campus during National Women’s History Month. It takes place at 7 p.m. in the Derryberry Hall Auditorium. She will discuss the political and social factors that led to the genocide, how she struggled to stay alive, and her life today. She also shares what led her to forgive her tormenters and those who killed her family.
