The Conflict Between the Ancestors and its Lingering Problems
Why Truth and Reconciliation between DuBois and Garvey is so Important?
President Nelson Mandela commissioned the truth and reconciliation committee in 1996, South Africa, naming Archbishop Desmond Tutu - Nobel laureate and anti-apartheid icon - as its chairperson. The Spirit of Peace initiative is predicated on such symbolic and substantive initiatives, such as the creation of Truth and Reconciliation Committee, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the United Nations Declaration on the Decade of People of African Descent.
Why are Truth and Reconciliation Important?
“Ordinary South Africans (People) are determined that the past be known. That it is better to ensure that it is not repeated. They seek this not out of vengeance but so that we can move in the future together. The choice of our nation is that that the past should be revealed, but that it comes to known in a way which promotes reconciliation and peace”. Nelson Mandela
