Desmond Mpilo Tutu was born on October 7, 1931, in what was then the Western Transvaal Union of South Africa to a Xhosa father and Motswana mother. (At home the family spoke Xhosa, but Tutu would eventually become a masterful linguist, also speaking Zulu, Sotho, Tswana, Afrikaans, and English.) The family was poor, but after his mother moved to Johannesburg to work as a cook at a school for the blind, Tutu began to excel academically, also cultivating his burgeoning fascination with Christianity and becoming a keen rugby player. When his family was unable to afford his first choice of studying medicine at university, Tutu attended a teacher training institution, Pretoria Bantu Normal College, on a scholarship, where he further developed his interest in literature and debating. Around this time he also met his wife, Nomalizo Leah Shenxane, who was studying to become a primary school teacher, and the pair married in 1955. Following a short stint teaching English and history at a local high school, Tutu and his wife decided to leave the profession due to the introduction of a stricter segregation law in schools.
Tutu then turned his focus to joining the clergy, studying at St Peter’s Theological College in Rosettenville, Johannesburg, while Leah Tutu began training as a nurse. At the time, tensions around apartheid were surging in the wake of the devastating Sharpeville massacre of 1960, leading Tutu to begin seeking to reconcile his Christian faith with his anti-racist activism. After two years serving as a priest, Tutu was encouraged to train as a theology teacher at King’s College London from 1963 to 1966, a period of his life that would prove hugely influential in developing his vision of a racially integrated society where freedom of speech could thrive. After spending a number of years teaching in South Africa and Lesotho, Tutu was appointed Africa Director for the International Missionary Council’s Theological Education Fund, which saw him relocate to London but travel widely around Africa, witnessing human rights abuses in countries such as Nigeria and the former Republic of Zaire and further galvanizing his passion for politics.
In 1975, Tutu was named the Dean of Johannesburg, where he began putting his beliefs into action. He used his platform to support an international economic boycott of South Africa and to modernize the liturgy through the introduction of gender-neutral pronouns (foreshadowing his later introduction of women to the clergy). The following year he was elected Bishop of Lesotho, and in 1978, he became General-Secretary of the South African Council of Churches and returned to Johannesburg, working to make the SACC a human rights advocacy organization as well as a religious one. As he became increasingly outspoken around the topic of anti-apartheid and struck up a correspondence with the then-imprisoned Nelson Mandela, he attracted the ire of the South African government. When his passport was confiscated in 1980, international leaders condemned the move. He embarked on several international tours after his passport was reinstated the following year, including a three-month stint in New York in 1984, where he met with President Ronald Reagan at the White House in an unsuccessful attempt to convince him to adopt stronger measures against the South African government, later denouncing Reagan as a racist for his inaction. The same year, Tutu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, after he was reportedly seen as a less controversial pick for the organization to throw their weight behind in the struggle for human rights in South Africa than his more straightforwardly political contemporaries like Nelson Mandela and Inkatha Freedom Party leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi.
