Greensboro Truth and Reconciliation Commission (GTRC)

Description

GTRC addressed racial divisions by launching a healing process for victims of the 1979 Greensboro Massacre, raising awareness of racial divisions, and promoting open dialogue.

Why Needed

  • Right to Truth and Justice
  • Greensboro, North Carolina, USA
  • The Beloved Community Center and Greensboro Justice Fund

Success: GTRC released a report in 2006, and it continues to hold meetings for ongoing healing.

  • The GTRC process involved diverse narratives, including victims, lawyers, writers, perpetrators, and police officers.
  • The community meetings continued post-GTRC to promote reconciliation.
