In 2011, I was fortunate enough to win an award from the Press Club of New Orleans because of an amazing woman. I had the privilege of interviewing Rwandan genocide survivor Immaculee Ilibagiza who talked about hiding for 91 days in a cramped bathroom with seven other women to avoid being murdered. It's an interview that I will treasure the rest of my days because of Immaculee's grace in describing what was easily the biggest nightmare of her life.
This powerful interview, which won Best Radio Entertainment Feature, was recorded when I was the co-producer of the award-winning "Sunday Journal" radio show on WYLD-FM in New Orleans. At the time, Immaculee was preparing to visit the city for a retreat to deliver her message about the power of forgiveness. Enjoy.
