Desmond Tutu to speak at Gonzaga’s commencement

Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu will be Gonzaga University’s commencement speaker in May. Tutu, who retired as Archbishop of Cape Town, South Africa in 1996, will receive an honorary Doctor of Laws degree during the ceremony. Tutu played a key role in the fight against apartheid, or white rule, in South Africa. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984. In 1995, President Nelson Mandela named Tutu chairman of the nation’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission charged with investigating human rights violations under apartheid. Admission to the ceremony will be by invitation only.
