Historical Who is Who

LUTULI, Albert

1908 - 1967


From a background as a tribal chief and as a school teacher, he became President-General of the African National Congress. As such he had a central role in the struggle against state Apartheid. His own deeply held Christian convictions were a direct challenge to the distorted version of Christianity as then held by the Dutch Reform Church. Nationally and internationally he is acknowledged for the strategic non-violence and integrity of his work – hence his award of the Nobel Prize for Peace. From 1962-5 he was Honorary Rector of the University of Glasgow in Scotland.
