Drew Kahn, Professor, Theater

Drew Kahn, professor of theater and director of the Anne Frank Project, was invited by the Rwanda ambassador to the United States, Mathilde Mukantabana, to speak at the 24th annual commemoration of the Rwandan genocide on April 7, 2018, at the Rwanda Embassy in Washington, D.C. The embassy holds the annual commemoration, called Kwibuka (meaning “remember” in Kinyarwanda), to pay tribute to the lives lost during the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi and to make a collective pledge to prevent such genocides from happening again anywhere in the world. The event was attended by international officials and representatives from the U.S. government, the military, and the United Nations.
