TUTU: THE AUTHORISED PORTRAIT is a celebration of eighty years of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, an icon whose humanity and compassion has touched the lives of millions. Born in South Africa's Transvaal and trained as a teacher because his family couldn't afford to send him to medical ...school, Desmond Tutu was ordained as an Anglican priest in 1960. He has dedicated his life to vigorously opposing apartheid and all forms of oppression, always advocating non-violence, peaceful reconciliation and social justice for all. Featuring a biography by legendary South African journalist Allister Sparks written with the full co-operation of Archbishop Desmond Tutu and over forty interviews conducted by Tutu's daughter Reverend Mpho Tutu with close family, friends, colleagues, comrades and adversaries, complemented by an unprecedented collection of images and unpublished artefacts drawn from Tutu's private files, this is a phenomenal story of one man's life-long commitment to the liberation of the oppressed.
