FORT WAYNE—Living history recently came to Fort Wayne when Nontombi Naomi Tutu visited the city as part of IPFW’s acclaimed Omnibus lecture series last month.

The third child of legendary South African Apartheid opponent Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Nomalizo Tutu, Naomi Tutu, learned first hand the challenges that racism presented in this world, as well as the type of perseverance and work it takes to overcome such obstacles. She shared her personal and family experience in a lecture called “Hard Conversations: Talking about Race and Racism” focusing not only on the racial divide in South Africa but from a global perspective, including the U.S., on the IPFW campus on Feb. 21.
