 Teaching Tolerance:  Lessons from Rwandan Genocide



Facing History and Ourselves and The Allstate Foundation Present:

 Community Conversations: Exploring Issues of Civic Responsibility



Facing History and Ourselves and The Allstate Foundation will present 
Carl Wilkens, director of Adventist Development and Relief Agency in 
Rwanda during the 1994 genocide. 



As the only American to stay in Rwanda during the genocide, Carl Wilkens 
risked his own life to bring food, water, and medicine to orphans around 
the capital city of Kigali. Wilkens was featured in Frontline's Ghosts 
of Rwanda and The Few Who Stayed: Defying Genocide, an American Radio 
Works documentary, which aired on NPR. During this Community 
Conversation, Wilkens will use his story as a platform to discuss the 
thought process behind making powerful decisions, specifically about how 
people stand up for their neighbor and choose to participate in a global 
community. Wilkens' focus will be on universal themes such as tolerance, 
compassion and participation.
