"Black people continue to tell their stories... because the community has made it our responsibility to tell our children the stories." – Rev. Nontombi Naomi Tutu

What happens when you accept oppression, division or hate? Everyone suffers, says the Rev. Nontombi Naomi Tutu. Now 25 years after her father, Archbishop Desmond Tutu spoke at The City Club of Cleveland, Rev. Tutu will join us to discuss her efforts in the fight for the rights of women, especially those of color, and others marginalized.

The challenges of growing up Black and female in apartheid South Africa have been the foundation of Rev. Tutu's life as an activist for human rights. After years spent as a development consultant, educator, and race and gender activist, Rev. Tutu accepted her call to ordained ministry. She currently resides in Atlanta where she is a priest associate at All Saints’ Episcopal.

As well as speaking and preaching, the Rev. Tutu has established Nozizwe Consulting. Its mission is to bring different groups together to learn from and celebrate their differences and acknowledge their shared humanity. As part of this work, she has led Truth and Reconciliation Workshops for groups dealing with different types of conflict. She is the recipient of four honorary doctorates from universities and colleges in the U.S. and Nigeria.

Join us at the City Club as Enlightened Solutions Co-Founder ChiChi Nkemere talks with Rev. Tutu on the work it takes to build gender coalitions across racial lines.


The livestream will be available beginning at 12:00pm. Have questions? Tweet them at @TheCityClub or send a text to 330.541.5794.
