Description

As the only American who chose to remain in Rwanda after the genocide began in 1994, his story reminds us of the profound connection between history and the moral choices we face each day. Wilkens puts a human “face” on genocide, showing us that the perpetrators, victims, and resistors will not soon be forgotten, and teaching us how one person really can make a difference. Currently on a Pedaling2Peace tour across the country, Wilkens and his wife are not only creating awareness and educating regarding the atrocities in Rwanda and now Darfur, they are also speaking on how to take action.
