Goals:

  • Raise awareness about slavery’s historical legacy from the time of the Exodus (Passover) to the recent genocide in Rwanda, while also informing participants about the current crisis in the Darfur region of Sudan so we can begin to act on these issues.

Overview:
Participants watch Hotel Rwanda to further their understanding of the history of Rwanda, the meaning of genocide and the truth about slavery. Debrief session with action plan will follow the film viewing.
