cityCURRENT Memphis Virtual Signature Speaking Series featuring Rev. Nontombi Naomi Tutu
Rev. Nontombi Naomi Tutu, educator, human rights activist, ordained minister, and daughter of Archbishop Desmond Tutu discusses the challenges of growing up black and female in apartheid South Africa and how it’s been the foundation of her life as an activist for human rights. These experiences taught her that our whole human family loses when we accept teachings of hate or situations of oppression. During this presentation, Rev. Tutu shares her story and lessons learned, talks about the impacts of the pandemic and cultural influences affecting us today, and offers hope and recommendations for how we can bring our community together to learn from and celebrate our differences and move toward a season of healing and prosperity.
