Archbishop Desmond Tutu on the Inequities of South Africa

“South Africa is a beautiful land. ¬†It can become a paradise for all of us. ¬†Please come to South Africa.” – ¬†Archbishop Desmond Tutu addressing the shipboard community.

As he prepares to leave the ship in Cape Town after spending 11 weeks sailing aboard the Spring 2013 Voyage, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu took the time to talk about his home country of South Africa. ¬†In this audio recording of that eloquent presentation, the Archbishop recounts what it was like to gain freedom in 1994, (“How do you describe a rose to a blind person?”), and discusses how South Africa remains one of the most unequal societies in the world.
