  • Truth and reconciliation is coming to America from the grassroots

    The Guardian - 02/26/2015

    Northeastern University Law School’s Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Institute exposes the truth about civil rights-era murders in the south, promoting official apologies, state pardons, memorialization activities, truth proceedings and institutional reform. The Mass Slavery Apology initiative engages in truth-telling to educate the public about the legacy of slavery and build support for reparations.

    These are all expressions of a larger truth and reconciliation movement underway that acts on social justice levels while also affirming the need for deep spiritual, emotional, dialogic, and relational work. Our nation needs this kind of holistic medicine in large doses to finally begin to transform cycles of racialized historical trauma so we will no longer be doomed to perpetually repeat them.
