Lone American Eyewitness to Discuss 1994 Rwandan Genocide

Muskegon Community College

When the Rwandan genocide broke out in 1994, one American, Carl Wilkens, chose to stay in the country and risk everything in hope of saving a few lives. The 2014 film I’m Not Leaving by writer/director Kevin Ekvall chronicles his experience. On Tuesday, Jan. 30, Wilkens will be in Muskegon for two screenings of the film and to answer questions afterwards. The showings at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. in MCC’s Collegiate Hall are sponsored by the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies – Muskegon. MCC Instructor George Maniates will facilitate the first showing and Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies Board Member Sarah Woycehoski will facilitate the second showing.
