Ubuntu Weekly #49

Greetings,
We’re thankful this week to all who joined us at
Bennett College for Women for the announcement that the archives of this historic truth and reconciliation effort will be housed in Bennett’s “herstoric” Carnegie Negro Library – to quote “Sister President” Johnnetta Cole – “from now to forevermore.”

**In keeping with our
Mandate, we made the archives decision in conjunction with the Greensboro Truth and Community Reconciliation Project. We reiterate that the Commission is independent of the Project and will produce an unbiased final report that reflects the perspectives of all of Greensboro.

**Many who have been following and participating in this process have reported learning or rethinking things they didn’t expect. What light bulbs have gone on for you? Send us reflections that we can post on our
blog to inspire more dialogue. E-mail them, along with a photo of yourself, to info@greensborotrc.org.

**Volunteer of the Week: Commissioner Mark Sills, who’s sharing his keen intellect and extraordinary faith with this effort while keeping up his great work with
FaithAction. Thanks, Mark!

**This week’s progress indicator: Our latest foundation contributor is the Julian Price Family Foundation, which we thank for its donation of $2,000.
