In late September and early October of 2012, John Green and Eleanor Green – two founders of the Institute for Community-Based Research – visited Cape Town, South Africa. They were part of a delegation associated with the University of Mississippi’s William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation. In addition to touring the city and surrounding areas (e.g. Cape of Good Hope), John and Eleanor participated in a series of meetings and workshops concerning social justice research and action. The sessions were focused on “Social Transformation through Societal Innovation.” Other participants in these hands-on meetings included people from across the United States (MS, HI, WA, DC, TX, CA, MA, CO, WI), South Africa, and Northern Ireland.
