discusses the legacy of the Rwandan genocide. His parents, seven siblings, and countless other family members were among 800,000 Tutsi brutally murdered over the course of 90 days in 1994 by extremist Rwandan Hutu. He was sent away to school in Congo when he was a teenager, and Sebarenzi returned to Rwanda after the genocide and was elected speaker of parliament. His book God Sleeps in Rwanda
examines the lessons of Rwanda and how we can prevent future tragedies from happening in that country and other parts of the world.
