Against The Odds


A wall at the Kigali Memorial Center listing some of the 250,000 victims of the 1994 Rwandan genocide who were buried at the site.

Ellis Cose is the producer, writer and host of a new multimedia documentary series called Against The Odds. It's being distributed by PRI, Public Radio International. Our discussion with Cose concentrated on his visit to Rwanda for the 15th anniversary of the 1994 genocide, when more than 800,000 Rwandans were slaughtered by their countrymen. That episode is titled Hope on a Pile of Bones. Click here to read more about that particular program, hear an audio sample of the show and see video clips of some of the interviews featured in the documentary.

Here are the scheduled air dates for Hope on a Pile of Bones and for the other installments of Against The Odds on public radio stations across the country.
