Left Handed Celebrities | Desmond Tutu
Another great lefty find, Desmond Tutu. Wow! There are so many renowned and accomplished left handers. We are just so giddy about it all. Desmond Tutu was very well known for fighting apartheid. The human rights activist was frustrated with the racism corrupting all aspects of South African life under apartheid and his life was devoted to fighting it.
"Desmond Tutu established a career in education before turning to theology, ultimately becoming one of the world's most prominent spiritual leaders. In 1978, Tutu was appointed the general secretary of his country's Council of Churches and became a leading spokesperson for the rights of Black South Africans. During the 1980s, he played an almost unrivaled role in drawing national and international attention to the iniquities of apartheid, and in 1984, he won the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts. He later chaired the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and has continued to draw attention to a number of social justice issues over the years."
Lefties Only is proud to find yet another great famous lefty. To top it off, a lefty who changed the face of history.
