Black History Month: At Koinonia Farm in Americus, Georgia, I interviewed Grant Edkins from Cape Town, South Africa and Yamiko Samu from Malawi, South Africa. They said in their country some 35% of the land has already been given back to the Black Africans in the wake of the end of Apartheid. The government has bought the land and is then allotting it. And when the land can’t be allotted, financial compensation is also being offered. What’s more, they said Truth and Reconciliation Commission Public Hearings have gone a long way in allowing the oppressed to air their feelings and for the oppressors to ask forgiveness. And in all that, both men said, the continent is on a solid path of healing. Both men also said that Nelson Mandella was a key because he came to power speaking reconciliation, not revenge. Mr. Samu, who has been in America for 10 years working with Habitat for Humanity, added that “a lot of lip service” is paid to what happened to the African Americans [and Native Americans] in this country, but virtually no significant amends (either reconciliation wise, or financially) have been made to blacks for past atrocities.
