Truth to Power: Desmond Tutu & The Churches
In the struggle against apartheid
About the exhibition
A new and exciting permanent exhibition celebrating key aspects of the legacy of the late Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Mpilo Tutu has entered Cape Town’s cultural heritage precinct.
A first of its kind on the African continent, the state-of-the-art exhibition explores the multi-faceted life of this loved and respected global icon. The exhibition is housed at the historic Old Granary building, the home of the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation and was curated in partnership with the Apartheid Museum.
About the exhibition
Residents and visitors to Cape Town alike are invited to come and experience the journey of one of South Africa’s greatest sons.
Upon entering the main exhibition, you will be greeted by the Arch and his anchor, his wife Nomalizo Leah Tutu, a life-long enabler to all his significant contributions in South Africa and globally. A special tribute to them as a couple is celebrated in the room entitled ”Side by Side”.

What People Have to Say
The pain of Apartheid still haunts me and I cried at the Victim Wall. Desmond was the greatest leader we ever had and I honour his legacy in the way I live!
Powerful. Disturbing. Encouraging. And hope-giving. Thank you for taking the time to use art and such beauty to help us grapple with some of our human atrocities and the ways in which we are called to do justice and seek peace. Thank you!
Inspiring and humbling. A wonderful space to reflect.
Atrocity has the ability to cultivate severe monstrocity. This exhibit, the worth of Tutu, proves that such can be subverted with love and humanity.
A beautiful, emotional, cathartic experience. So grateful for the Tutu family, the strength and courage of Desmond Tutu and for his proactive nature.
