Wayne State to Host Discussion of Rwandan Genocide
WAYNE, Neb. (Feb. 10, 2010) -- Students, faculty and members of the community are invited to participate in “Conversations,” a new discussion program from Wayne State College's American Democracy Project and co-sponsored by the Wayne Political Union. The next conversation will center on a showing of the film, "Hotel Rwanda,'' at 7 p.m. Feb. 23 in Connell Room 131.
The film portrays the true-life story of Paul Rusesabagina, a hotel manager who housed more than a thousand Tutsi refugees during the Rwandan Genocide of 1994. Immediately after the movie there will be a conversation about the film with opportunities for students to participate in Wayne State College's Model United Nations program.
"Conversations" brings students, faculty and members of the community together to discuss important and timely policy issues. Please watch for more "Conversations" in the future.
