As We Forgive – a film by Laura Waters Hinson
Performance by SLAM Poet Sonya Renee Taylor
Could you forgive a person who murdered your family?
This is the question faced by the subjects of As We Forgive, a documentary about Rosaria and Chantal— two Rwandan women coming face-to-face with the men who slaughtered their families during the 1994 genocide.
Struggling to live again as neighbors, these survivors and killers discover the power and the pain of radical reconciliation.
A variety of East African Food will be served!
