Atlanta Tribute Event to Honor Legacy of Archbishop Desmond Tutu




Leaders of Atlanta’s political, business, faith and academic communities will come together to honor the life, legacy and local impact of the iconic South African theologian and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, in a formal tribute held days before what would have been his 91st birthday October 7.

The event will reflect and illuminate Archbishop Tutu’s human rights activism and transformational message of restorative social justice and reconciliation. 

A champion for justice, a promoter of peace, Archbishop Tutu’s transformative message taught nations how to heal their divisions through restorative social justice and reconciliation. The Nobel Prize Laureate’s courageous crusade helped bring down the racist apartheid regime in South Africa.
