Truth and Reconciliation in a Time of Crises with Rev. Nontombi Naomi Tutu
The past five years have been eye-opening. In 2015, Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission released its final report concerning the devastating impacts of European colonialism and the government-sanctioned residential school systems imposed upon Indigenous peoples. In 2019, the Canadian government completed its inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. And now in 2020 we’re facing a global pandemic, ongoing climate change, political strife and widespread protests against police brutality and racism.

In response to these issues and crises, hear from the Rev. Nontombi Naomi Tutu about her work and activism for human rights in South Africa and the United States. Drawing on her past experiences, Rev. Tutu will discuss how we can move forward in this difficult time. Learn how we can confront and combat racism and sexism, acknowledge the truth of colonial and gendered violence, and what role religion might play in this process.

Presented in partnership with the Chester Ronning Centre for the Study of Religion and Public Life and Augustana Campus.
