 Third Genocide Conference: Negationism, Revisionism, Survivors’ Testimonies, Eyewitness Accounts, Justice and Memory. 
This year from November 2-4 2011 Pan African Studies and the Department of Ethnic Studies at California State University, Sacramento is hosting the Third International Genocide Conference. The conference is hosted in collaboration with American University of Nigeria, the Center for Genocide and Holocaust Studies at Sonoma State University, Global Majority Peace Organization, Cosumnes River College, and the Friends of Rwanda Association (FORA). Negationism, Revisionism, Survivors’ Testimonies, Eyewitness Accounts, Justice and Memory
Through the leadership of the late Dr. Alexandre Kimenyi, Pan African Studies has previously hosted three conferences focusing on genocide. The first International Conference took place in 1998 and the second in 2004.  In 2007 a special conference focusing on Post Genocide Rwanda was held.  Dr. Alexandre Kimenyi was a professor in the Department of Ethnic Studies and Pan African Studies. Before his sudden death in June 2010, he sent out calls for papers for this conference.  This year’s conference is of great significance to our University, it solidifies Dr. Kimenyi’s legacy and determination to ensure that the brutality of Genocide is arrested.
