Human Library Series: Get to Know a Refugee
John's Island Regional Library - Interested members of the community are asked to join us in a safe space to converse with individuals who have been exposed to prejudice or stigma. Join us to combat intolerance by engaging in open, honest and respectful dialogues. Bakemayi Mufuta was born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. When he was 7 years old, he and his family fled the oncoming genocide to a refugee camp in Zambia where he continued his education and became a pastor. In 2017, after 22 years in the camp, the United States accepted him, his wife and children as refugees. Cosponsored by Lutheran Services.
