To commemorate the anniversary of Argentina’s “Never Again” report, the Duke Human Rights Center @ the Franklin Humanities Institute released its first ever e-book in 2016.

Commissioning Truths: Essays on the 30th Anniversary of Nunca Más came out of a year-long critical examination of the history and practice of truth commissions. Hosted at Duke University and cosponsored by the Human Rights Archive at the Rubenstein Library, the series sought to recognize the importance of “Never Again” while at the same time examining the current and future of truth in a human rights context. The e-book is available for free through Smashwords and on our web site.

Reflections on Charleston – LIVE – February 9, 2016

Emanuel AME Church was the site of the June 17th, 2015 killing of nine members of a Bible study group at the oldest African Methodist Episcopal Church in the South at Charleston, South Carolina. The hate crime launched a national conversation on faith and race. Mrs. Jennifer Pinckney, the widow of the late preacher and senator Clementa Pinckney, joined members of the Duke community and the general public to house an important dialogue at “Reflections on Charleston”.
