Dumisani Rebombo is no ordinary advocate for women's rights in South Africa. He is a rapist, who sought out his victim two decades after his brutal act to ask for forgiveness.He is all this in a nation where sexual assault has become so common that a woman in South Africa is more likely to be raped than learn to read.

Cinco de Mayo -- the unofficial U.S. holiday long believed to have been imported, with celebratory beer, from Mexico -- isn't a Mexican holiday at all but rather an American one created by Latinos in the American West during the Civil War, according to new research by a California professor. Conventional thinking has long held that the holiday -- now a commercial juggernaut -- emerged from the mass migrations of the bloody Mexican Revolution of the 1910s or even during Chicano activism in the 1960s in California, University of California at Los Angeles Professor David Hayes-Bautista told CNN. But on the 150th anniversary of the holiday, Hayes-Bautista is announcing that he accidentally found the origins of Cinco de Mayo -- the 5th of May -- after poring through Spanish-language newspapers in California from the mid-1800s while working on another research project.
