Bridging a river of blood

2013-11-14 00:00

THERE can’t be many conferences that begin with the programme director announcing that delegates presenting papers “take responsibility” for their content. That Pieter Nel, programme director of the Courageous Conversations conference held at Ncome Museum last week, felt the need to do so indicated the potentially controversial nature of what might follow.

The Ncome Museum, near Dundee, is situated on the eastern bank of the Ncome River. On the other side stands the replica laager of 64 bronze Voortrekker ox wagons at the Blood River Heritage site. The two sites are linked by a bridge of reconciliation, ironically, usually closed, but opened for the duration of the conference. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
