Event Description:

Desmond Tutu Center executive director and anti-apartheid leader Allan Boesak shares how he dared to dream of a better future for his beloved county, South Africa.

Allan Boesak has been internationally recognized for his influential leadership and activism in the fight against apartheid in his native South Africa.  During the 1980s he worked alongside Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Nelson Mandela to promote a more just society and reconciled community. Since then, he has emerged as a global voice for human dignity, reconciliation and social justice.

Before hearing from Boesak, audience members will be engaged in an interactive presentation led by youth from the Kheprw Institute, who went around the city of Indianapolis asking other youth about their current and future dreams for the city. By contemplating one’s “place” in the world, the stage will be set to not only hear Boesak’s story but to hear it in light of one’s own story so as to consider how challenges and privileges shape our personal and collective dreams.

Walk-ins welcome, but RSVPs still requested

Presented by the Desmond Tutu Center for Peace, Reconciliation and Global Justice at Butler University and the Christian Theological Seminary and Kheprw Institute.
