What did Desmond Tutu do to fight racism?

Desmond Tutu (aged 81) is a South African Church minister who raise to world wide fame during the 80s as an opponent of the apartheid government in S. Afrcia. He was an Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town.

In South Africa at the time, the majority of the black population were not allowed to vote. They were housed in impoverished townships. Black people couldn't even use white facilities. Police beat the black people and black opposition were sometimes killed. In 1976 black school kids were unlawfully killed.

Tutu campaigned against injustice, rising in the Church and using his position to bring pressure for change through the boycott of S.African goods. He organised big peaceful demonstrations aand contributed to the release of Mandela and the end of the twisted system.

He got a Nobel Peace Prize. He got a Gandhi Peace Prize.

In front of 120,000 in 1993 he said, 'We are the rainbow people of God. We are unstoppable. Nobody can stop us on our march of victory (we are unstoppable). No one (we are unstoppable), no guns, nothing. Nothing will stop us (we are unstoppable), for we are moving to freedom. We are moving to freedom and nobody can stop is (we are unstoppable). For God is on our side.'

What he was trying to say in that speech is that they were unstoppable.

He used his faith in god to get him and the others who were in dark times through. He used non violence and prayer and speeches. He said that god needs us all and that God couldn't care less if we were black, white, brown, straight, Christian or not he loves us all and it is through us that he works.

How did Desmond Tutu help other people?

Desmond Mpilo Tutu was born October 7, 1931 in Klerksdorph, Transvaal. At the age of 12, Tutu moved with his family to Johannesburg. Even though Desmond Tutu wanted to be a physician, his family couldn't afford the training, so, instead, he followed his father's footsteps into teaching. Tutu began his studies at Pretoria Bantu Normal College from 1951-1953, and at this time he also received his diploma. He later went on to the University of South Africa and received his Bachelor of Arts degree.

On July 2, 1955, he married his wife, Leah, and they later had four children. He went on teaching at Johannesburg Bantu High School where he remained until 1957. Desmond Tutu then resigned following the passage of the Bantu Education Act, protesting the poor educational prospects for black South Africans. Desmond Tutu continued to study theology and in 1960 was ordained as an Anglican Priest. He was then named the Anglican Dean of Johannesburg, South Africa in 1975.

In 1978 he was the first black to hold the position of Dean of St. Mary's Cathedral in Johannesburg. He later became the Bishop of Lesotho. Later on in the year, he became the first black General Secretary of the South African Council of Churches. The South African Council of Churches is a contact organization for the churches of South Africa and functions as a national committee for the World Council of Churches. About 80 percent of their members are black, and they now dominate the leading positions. During this time, Tutu gained International recognition for his vocalization against racial apartheid.
