This project brings together members of the University of Washington College of Education, Comparative History of Ideas (CHID) and the School of Social Work; teachers and students from Washington Middle School; community organizations, and students from South Africa; and Desmond Tutu. The project joined eighth grade students with peers from Cape Town, South Africa for three weeks of intercultural dialogue, dramatization, writing, listening and performing arts. Archbishop Desmond Tutu spoke to an all-school assembly, encouraging compassion and understanding as students began the work of engaging around race and equality in their lives. Tutu told the students that "the world needs to know that we are different from each other NOT in order to live apart, but in order to live in a complimentary fashion together."
