Ingrid Betancourt

Betancourt Tells Her Story at MDC

Former Colombian presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt visited MDC’s Wolfson Campus recently to discuss and read from her book Even Silence Has an End: My Six Years of Captivity in the Colombian Jungle. She shared her harrowing account of being kidnapped by FARC rebels and being held hostage in rebel camps. Freed in 2008 by the Colombian army, today Betancourt is determined to draw attention to the plight of hostages and victims of terrorism throughout the world. The event was presented by the Florida Center for the Literary Arts (FCLA) at Miami Dade College, in collaboration with MDC’s Miami Leadership Roundtable Women Series and Books & Books.
