There are few Winnipeggers who need to be told who Wilma Derksen is, and some will remember the powerful talk on forgiveness that she gave on our stage in 2012. There were few dry eyes in the house, and the talk received a standing ovation; the video is below. Through this talk, Wilma, her work, and her story became known to Malcolm Gladwell, who met with her and told her story to an international audience in his 2013 book David and Goliath.
