FatherLapsleyFather Michael Lapsley returns to the Manhattanville community on Tuesday, April 24 to discuss his new book Healing Individual and Collective Wounds.

Fr. Lapsley lost both his hands and an eye to a letter bomb while working to end Apartheid in South Africa. Following his involvement in the Truth and Reconciliation hearings in South Africa he developed a method for addressing trauma and victimhood in individuals, communities, and nations and does workshops all over the world.

The event, sponsored by the Connie Hogarth Center for Social Action and the Duchesne Center for Religion and Social Justice, will be held in the East Library, Reid Hall at 7:15 p.m.

The Connie Hogarth Center works to educate students on the importance of planned action toward social change. We train students to educate, activate and agitate for that positive change as we work toward an equitable, just, non-racist, and environmentally sustainable world.
