Ubuntu Weekly #63

We offer thanks this week to about 70 people who turned out for our GTRC Report Receivers gathering at Tuscana Cuisine. We were encouraged by the warm spirit and broad commitment to using our final report in continuing work for community reconciliation.

  • We also offer thanks to the Wachovia Foundation for a $1,000 contribution and to the InSight Fund for a $1,500 contribution in support of our work.
  • Volunteer of the Week: Dr. Millicent Brown, a member of the history faculty at N.C. A&T State University who – in addition to speaking at our third public hearing – took time during the busy close of the semester to review and offer suggestions on one of our final report chapters. Thanks, Millicent!
  • This week’s progress indicator: More than 40 local and national organizations so far have agreed to become GTRC Report Receivers.
