Rigoberta Menchú Book

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet 1992 Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchú Tum. Rigoberta, who was born in Guatemala, is of Mayan Indian descent and over the years she has overcome social, political, educational, and economical buriers to become an active advocate for the rights of the different ethnic groups in America. For all her dedication and hard work, she was also awarded the Prince of Asturias award in 1998. During my visit with her, she signed her book for me and included a short dedication. Here is her note!
