Angel Book of the Month
New News out of Africa— by Charlayne Hunter-Gault
Hunter-Gault brings long and respected journalistic experience with NPR, CNN and PBS, as well as riveting personal experience, to an examination of developments in Africa that most Americans remain ignorant of because of the scarcity of coverage in the American media. Hunter-Gault offers observations on South Africa's struggle to reconcile its troubled racial past, examining unresolved issues of apartheid and how they are being addressed, including developing a civil society, efforts at black economic empowerment, and treatment of HIV/AIDS.
She explores efforts by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to expose the brutality of the apartheid regime without destroying future prospects for peace and democracy, and how--despite its imperfections--the commission provides a model for other African nations struggling to rebuild after years of internal conflict. Despite staggering unemployment and the scourge of AIDS, South Africa is showing promising efforts to build schools, broaden access to universities, expand health-care services, and otherwise advance the prospects for Africans of all races.
