South Africa’s Archbishop Desmond Tutu Dies, Age 90

South Africa’s archbishop Desmond Tutu a man whose leadership and voice helped tear down apartheid, has died.

While Nelson Mandela was the face of South Africa’s liberation struggle, Archbishop Desmond Tutu was its voice.

He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 at a time where the anti-apartheid movement was under attack.

The minority government had banned the African National Congress and imprisoned its leaders.

It was the clergy — led by tutu — that stepped in to fill the void.

His fight paid off a decade later when South Africa held its first democratic election in 1994.

He retired from public work in 2010 but remained in the public eye working to fight injustices of the world.

Archbishop Tutu was 90.
