"Survivors of the massacre could come before the Greensboro City Council and, as individuals or a group, apologize for their roles in the terrible events of Nov. 3, 1979."

Cone is correct that his suggestion is counterintuitive, but imagine the power of those who lost the most that day taking the first step toward Reconciliation.
