Ubuntu Weekly #53

This is our three-part challenge right now: 1) to create a complete, well-documented final report; 2) to package it in the most broadly accessible formats; and 3) to raise enough money to cover the cost.

  • Commission Research Assistant Eli Mungo spent three days at Yale University last week at a conference on truth commission archives organized by both the International Center for Transitional Justice and the Artemis Project. Click here to read some of his reflections.
  • For having us participate in last week’s panel discussion on “Healing Via Truth and Reconciliation,“ we offer thanks to Dr. Sheila Whitley, Dr. Eleanor Gwynn and others teaching and learning through the “American South Meets South Africa” project at N.C. A&T State University.
  • Volunteer of the Week: Matt Perault, a Master of Public Policy student at Duke University who has helped us through work with our friends at the Duke Human Rights Initiative. Thanks, Matt!
  • This week’s progress indicator: The number of recipients of this weekly newsletter, which we like to think of as the world’s shortest, has recently topped 800.
