Long Night's Journey into Day poses particular problems for US audiences. For many white Americans, race is a subject which is avoided whenever possible. One cannot avoid discussing race and racism after seeing this film for it is rooted in the apartheid racial system's inequities and a racially-based conflict. Moreover, for the thoughtful viewer it provides a bridge for examining race and racism, the similarities and the dissimilarities, in the South African and US contexts.

No national truth and reconciliation process has yet occurred in the US. With the growth in hate groups and increasing numbers of racial incidents, and, as well, more people protesting the hatred, racial tension in the United States is on the rise. Too often, US racial matters are deceptively cloaked in a plethora of national unity lies, myths and coded language. Together, the lies and myths become a web of ideological obfuscation which, cozily unfurled at deceptive corporate moments like Columbus Day, Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday or Black/Latino/Asian history months, serves to keep the American people from ever reaching for and internalizing hard truths which include our genocidal treatment of American Indians. The United States, as a nation, still hides its painful racial history and avoids long-term, structural solutions to its ongoing racial crises. Long Night's Journey into Day is a poignant exclamation point that the US has a long-overdue need for an in-depth process of truth finding, followed, one hopes, by reconciliation. While telling part of the story of South Africa's search, it also makes a great contribution to illuminating some of the pathways for the US journey.

The process of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission as depicted in Long Night's Journey into Day is a very different approach to criminal justice. The primary focus of the TRC was on the victim as well as the perpetrator of violence. Both were invited to voluntarily tell their stories fully and freely to the Commission. Justice became synonymous with complete disclosure and taking of responsibility. Indeed, no rules of evidence constrained witnesses before the TRC. One Commissioner, for instance, invited the testimony of an elderly woman whose son had been murdered, by saying, "I wonder if you would like to tell us what is on your heart." The point of inviting the victim's story was not merely to punish the perpetrator. As Archbishop Desmond Tutu stated, "This process is not about pillorying anybody. It's not about persecuting anybody. It's ultimately about getting to the truth so that we can help to heal. And also so that we may know what to avoid in the future." The goal of the process is reconciliation - for the victim, perpetrator, and all of society - not merely punishment.

Nyameka Goniwe, whose husband was one of the Cradock 4, portrays this vividly in Long Night's Journey into Day by refusing to offer her husband's killer absolution; she will not give him that, though she acknowledges that the Truth and Reconciliation Commission may give something in that vein. Yet a collective process can create an armature for individuals' emotions and communal expression: the challenge is to offer room for individuals to come to grips with what happened in their own way. Cynthia Ngewu, mother of one of the young men known as the Guguletu 7, initially says she will not forgive the informant who caused the ambush leading to her son's death, yet after a meeting confronting him, and hearing from him, all in the shadow of the TRC, she does indeed forgive.
