MLK DAY CELEBRATION
Join Hopkinton Freedom Team in celebrating MLK Day with Hyppolite Ntigurirwa for a Talk on Unity & Peace.
Hyppolite Ntigurirwa is an artist, activist, and founder of Be the Peace, an organization focusing on the use of art to halt the intergenerational transmission of hate and to promote the power of cross-generational healing. A child survivor of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi, Hyppolite continues to promote reconciliation and peace throughout Rwanda. In 2019, he envisioned and conducted the “Be the Peace Walk,” a 100-day performance piece in which he walked across the country in commemoration of 25 years since the end of the genocide.
Islamic Masumeen Center of New England will be hosting their yearly MLK Day event on Sunday, January 17th, where Hyppolite's talk will be featured. The recording will be made available here too. Stay tuned!
