The Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education (Chhange) February Virtual Lunch & Learn Program will examine the legacy of colonialism in Rwanda and features Chhange Executive Director, Dr. Sara E. Brown.

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.

Dr. Sara E. Brown has worked and conducted research in Rwanda since 2004. Her book, Gender and Genocide in Rwanda, was recently made Open Access by Routledge Publishing & Knowledge Unlatched.

Join Chhange and Dr. Brown for an important discussion about the effects of colonial rule and the lead up to genocide.
