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.)

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.
