[Autograph Portrait Print of Bishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Recipient and South African Non-Violent, Anti-Apartheid Activist].
Autographed portrait print of a triumphant Bishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, 1984 Nobel Peace Prize Recipient.
The image of Bishop Tutu—then Bishop of Lesotho and General Secretary of the South African Council of Churches—shows him around the time he became a Nobel Laureate, even wearing the same pectoral cross (St. Thomas Cross) and eyeglasses he wore when he accepted the prize in Oslo.
Bishop Tutu, later Archbishop of Cape Town, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his “…role as a unifying leader figure in the campaign to resolve the problem of apartheid in South Africa. … [the] award should be seen as a renewed recognition of the courage and heroism shown by black South Africans in their use of peaceful methods in the struggle against apartheid. This recognition is also directed to all who, throughout the world, use such methods to stand in the vanguard of the campaign for racial equality as a human right.”¹
