Looking for the Good: The Journey from Neighbor to Killer

Carl Wilkins with Furman University

Carl Wilkens, author and non-governmental organization (NGO) leader during the 1994 Rwandan genocide, will speak on the Furman University campus Thursday, March 28, at 7 p.m. in Daniel Memorial Chapel on campus.

His talk, “Looking for the Good: The Journey from Neighbor to Killer,” is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Furman University Department of English, Furman’s Office of Spiritual Life, and the South Carolina Council on the Holocaust.

For more than a decade, Wilkens has been sharing stories around the globe to inspire and equip people to “enter the world of The Other.” He led NGO Adventist Development and Relief Agency International (ADRA) in Rwanda and was the only American who chose to stay in Kigali, Rwanda throughout the genocide, which claimed 800,000 lives.

Working with Rwandan colleagues, Wilkens helped save hundreds of lives by bringing food, water and medicine to clusters of orphans trapped around the city.
