Naomi Tutu Talks Faith and Activism
The Rev. Naomi Tutu visited Kennesaw State University yesterday to share her story with students and faculty as part of a lecture series co-sponsored by the American Democracy Project, the Division of Global Affairs and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
Tutu, third child of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former Nobel Peace Prize winner, lectured about the challenges of growing up black and female in apartheid South Africa – the foundation of her life as a champion of human rights and social change. Those experiences taught her that our whole human family loses when we accept situations of oppression, and how the teaching and preaching of hate and division injure us all.
