Dressing Apartheid Wounds With Truth and Reconciliation

Mandela tapped Desmond Tutu to serve as chair over the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, a court-like reparative justice body established in Cape Town, South Africa. The hearings lasted from 1996 to 1998, during which witnesses and perpetrators of apartheid’s gross human rights and political violations testified about their experiences.
