Event Description

Cambodian native and humanitarian Arn Chorn Pond will give a lecture titled “Child of War, Man of Peace,” and perform the flute with 2004 Hamilton College graduate Jeff Dyer.

Pond survived the Cambodian genocide to become an internationally recognized human rights leader. He is the subject of the documentary “The Flute Player” and of the critically acclaimed book "Never Fall Down" (Harper Collins, 2012). Because the Khmer Rouge had massacred most of a generation’s artists and musicians, Pond is teaching the next generation of Cambodians -- both in the U.S. and in Cambodia -- about their traditional music and art forms.

He is an accomplished musician, recording artist and performer who travels the world speaking to young people motivating them to be peacemakers.

This event is sponsored by Hamilton’s Diversity and Social Justice Project and the Dean of Faculty’s office.
