Desmond Tutu, Peacemaker: A conversation with Desmond Tutu and John Allen. Recorded March 21, 2013 by Pepperdine University School of Law. This brilliant video provides an opportunity for Desmond Tutu and his Press Secretary John Allen to reflect upon the work of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It is a marvellous testament to the potential for goodness that exists in humanity. Tutu’s use of the African word “ubuntu” to express his conviction that we cannot be fully human without other humans is wisdom born of human evolution witnessed up close and personal.

  1. I love ‘ubuntu’, i think its a quality that every African has. I am from Nigeria and i have studied precolonial Nigeria and i have clearly seen ubuntu.I think if Africa needs to go foward and free herself from religious conflict,tribalism,crime,corruption,neocolonialism and the rest we need UBUNTU, because it is an evolution from comunualism wich had been practiced i Africa for many years. We need to throw the idea of individualism and embrace the new hope for africa, UBUNTU.
