Before arriving in Rochester as refugees, siblings Sandra Uwiringiyimama and Alex Ngabo fled genocide in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The exhibit is their visual story. Join us for the Exhibit's Opening Reception on Thursday, September 27, at 6 pm in the Queen Room of the Library. It is free and open to the public. A member of Sandra and Alex's family will be the guest speaker.

The Survivor's Exhibit is part of a series sponsored by the Anthropology Department and the Drake Memorial Library. Stay tuned for the schedule of events which highlight international human rights issues and their impact our local Brockport-Rochester communities.
