Summary During the twenty-seven years of Nelson Mandela's imprisonment, Desmond Tutu served as the embodiment of hope for all the oppressed people of South Africa. Deprived of the right to vote (and virtually every other civil right), South Africa's people of color found their beloved archbishop to be a constant source of strength and courage in the wearing, year-in, year-out battle against the consummate evil of apartheid. So successful was Tutu in his great work that he became, as Nelson Mandela tells us in his Foreword, "public enemy number one." Here is the extraordinarily inspiring story of Desmond Tutu's decades-long struggle as the dedicated spokesman for one of the most important liberation movements of modern times, the anti-apartheid movement - as told by John Allen, the courageous journalist who became the archbishop's media secretary. Woven into the astonishing tapestry of narrative are Tutu's speeches, letters, and sermons - the thrilling addresses that have made him not only a symbol of hope for his own people but a focus for justice, peace, and reconciliation throughout the world. With a clarity of pitch born out of decades of experience, Tutu shows us all how to move forward with honesty and compassion to build a newer and more humane world. For, as he says, "We can only be human in fellowship, in community...in Peace." Here is a guidebook that has universal resonance, a how-to book on accomplishing a revolution, one that ends with South Africa's first free election, in which Desmond Tutu, at the age of sixty-two, is permitted to vote for the first time in his life! But here is a revolution that, as the archbishop explains, ends not in mere victory, but in peace and reconciliation for all the Rainbow People of God.
