Apartheid Museum Develops an Exhibition on the TRC with Khulumani's Participation

On Tuesday 29 July 2014, film makers commissioned by the Apartheid Museum will be interviewing nine Khulumani members who are survivors of the violations associated with the conflicts of the past. The interviewees will share their experiences of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and the hopes that the government will finally fully embrace the excellent recommendations of the TRC that held the promise of transforming the lives of survivors and family members of victims of the atrocities of the past. It is now time to finish what we started with the setting up of the TRC in 1996. We need to pick up where these matters were left unresolved.

Mbembe confirms the Value of Engaging those who 'Stood for the Truth' in the struggle to dismantle Apartheid in the Continuing Struggle for Antiracism and Nonracialism

Professor Achille Mbembe of the University of the Witwatersrand's Institute for Social and Economic Research recently co-convened the 2014 Johannesburg Workshop in Theory and Criticism (JWTC). The theme was Archives of the Post Racial.

In his paper for the JWTC, part of which has been reprinted in this week's Mail & Guardian, Mbembe speaks of the idea of non-racialism as one of South Africa's most potent contributions to modern political thought and practice. But he shares his sense that South Africans have moved away from the vision of the possibilities of building a truly post racial society in which "structures of racism are dismantled and all forms of racial injury and trauma will be healed." (See article attached.)

A Panel at the Durban International Film Festival discusses the TRC's Unfinished Business: Unmasking Reconciliation: 20 Year On .... Moving Beyond The Cliche

The screenings of two films, A Snake Gives Birth to a Snake and Soft Vengeance: Albie Sachs and the New South Africa, generated a panel discussion on the state of reconciliation in South Africa today.

Panelists debated the role of reparations in achieving reconciliation in South Africa and confirmed Archibishop Emeritus Tutu's disappointment that government 'dropped the ball' on the implementation of TRC recommendations in so serious a manner.
