This case study looks at how a community, deeply divided along racial lines, is trying to find reconciliation and healing. Nyameka Goniwe is the narrator. She initiated the Community Healing program in Cradock because of her own personal journey through pain and reconciliation. The Programme has given the community a medium through which to take on collective responsibility for the healing of every individual.
