The challenges of growing up black and female in apartheid South Africa have been the foundation of Naomi’s life as an activist for human rights. Those experiences taught her that our whole human family loses when we accept situations of oppression, and how the teaching and preaching hate and division injure us all. In her speeches she blends this passion for human dignity with humour and personal stories.

Naomi is the third child Archbishop Desmond and Nomalizo Leah Tutu. She was born in South Africa, educated in Swaziland, the US and England, and has divided her adult life between South Africa and the US. Her professional experience ranges from being a development consultant in West Africa, to being program coordinator for programs on Race and Gender and Gender-based Violence in Education at the University of Cape Town. In addition she has taught at the Universities of Hartford and Connecticut, Brevard College and the Fisk University.

Naomi talks about her experiences growing up in apartheid South Africa to audiences all over the world. She is a much sought after speaker for groups as varied as business associations, professional conferences, elected officials and church and civic organizations.
