Nontombi Naomi Tutu’s life has been spent as a South African activist for human rights, as well as a consultant and educator against oppression. She is the daughter of the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Nomalizo Leah Tutu. She will be presenting her story at Michigan State University’s Wharton Center for Performing Arts on Monday, Nov. 5.
“The challenges of growing up black and female in apartheid South Africa have been the foundation of Nontombi Naomi Tutu’s life as an activist, consultant, and educator. Her experiences taught her that the human family loses when we accept situations of oppression: teaching hate and division injures us all,” wrote event organizers. “She has followed her own path to build a better world, channeling opportunities she has been given to raise her voice as a champion for the dignity of all. She blends this passion with humor, joy and personal stories. Tutu is presented in conjunction with MSU’s Year of Global Africa.”
