McDaniel hosts Black History Month Convocation Feb. 16 featuring Rev. Tutu

McDaniel hosts Black History Month Convocation Feb. 16 featuring Rev. Tutu

McDaniel College has announced the inaugural Black History Month Convocation featuring human rights activist Rev. Nontombi Naomi Tutu

The hour-long event takes place Wed., Feb. 16, at 6 p.m. (doors open at 5:45 p.m.), in WMC Alumni Hall 2 College Hill, Westminster, Md. and is free and open to the public. A livestream via Zoom will also be available through advance registration.

Welcome remarks will be provided by McDaniel College President Julia Jasken. Richard M. Smith, associate provost for equity and belonging at McDaniel, will introduce Rev. Tutu.

Rev. Tutu shares her experiences as a human rights advocate as well as growing up as the daughter of the late Desmond Tutu in apartheid South Africa.

Rev. Nontombi Naomi Tutu is the third child of the late Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, who died Dec. 26, 2021, at the age of 90, and Nomalizo Leah Tutu. She was born in South Africa and has divided her adult life between South Africa and the United States.

The challenges of growing up Black and female in apartheid South Africa have inspired her activism 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.

She started her public speaking as a college student at Berea College in Kentucky in the 1970s and her professional experience ranges from being a development consultant in West Africa to coordinating programs on race and gender, as well as gender-based violence prevention education at the African Gender Institute at the University of Cape Town. She is a consultant for the Spiritual Alliance to Stop Intimate Violence (SAIV) and the Foundation for Hospices in Sub-Saharan Africa (FHSSA).

This inaugural Black History Month Convocation was founded by McDaniel College President Julia Jasken as a new signature event to be held annually at McDaniel in recognition of Black History Month. This annual event will provide an opportunity to hear from prominent individuals working towards social justice and racial equity.

Welcome remarks will be provided by President Jasken and Richard M. Smith, associate provost for equity and belonging at McDaniel, will introduce Rev. Tutu.
