To mark the 25th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide, Paul Rusesabagina will serve as the keynote speaker of the 12th annual Voices of Vigilance program organized by student leaders of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Project (HGHRP) at Monroe Community College. Rusesabagina provided shelter for 1,268 people at the establishment he managed, the Hôtel des Mille Collines, which was the only public place where people were safe during the genocide. The 2004 film "Hotel Rwanda," starring Don Cheadle, chronicles Rusesabagina’s harrowing experience. Rusesabagina will present “A Lesson Yet to be Learned,” in MCC’s theatre, located in the Robin and Tim Wentworth Arts Building on the Brighton Campus, 1000 East Henrietta Road. Parking will be available in Lot F. Tickets available at www.monroecctickets.com.
