Tubeho ("to live again") Project: Rwandan Survivors of Genocide
During the fall of 2006, the Mansfield Institute for Social Justice and Transformation partnered with the Crossroads Fund and with Women's Equity in Access to Care and Treatment (WE-ACTx) to bring the powerful Tubeho Project to Roosevelt University. The exhibit was displayed in the lobby of the Roosevelt University Auditorium Building from November-December, 2006 and was seen by hundreds of visitors, thereby educating them about the genocide in Rwanda.
Tubeho is an oral history documentary project comprised of portraits of survivors of genocide by photographer Jon Walden as well as written testimonies and an historic narrative of the Rwandan genocide and its aftermath.
