Join Chhange's Executive Director, Dr. Sara E. Brown, for our February Lunch & Learn!

The 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda was rooted in specific historical events within and beyond the borders of the country. Prior to colonial rule, an established Rwandan kingdom contributed to a group identity based upon shared culture, language, and leadership. This talk will address the impact of colonial rule on the systems of power and influence in Rwanda and its ripple effects leading up to genocide.
