The Kalima family was devastated by the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. Kizito will speak about his experience as a genocide survivor and how he approaches the process of reconciliation in the aftermath of atrocity. There will be a Q+A session during which attendees are invited to ask questions. The event will be followed by a book signing.
