Last night I had the pleasure of meeting Desmond Tutu, the Anglican Arch Bishop, Nobel laureate, and famous anti-apartheid activist. The Arch Bishop was speaking at the Insight Speaker Series, hosted by Elizabeth Weiland, whom we previously have interviewed on Startup Story Radio.
Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper opened the event by describing the rough and impoverished childhood that Desmond Tutu endured as a young black child in South Africa.
Desmond Tutu spoke about how the entire would is connected and that no man is “self-made” but is rather made by others. He also spoke about how as a boy he was inspired by the first black American baseball players.
It was an amazing event, and I am thankful that I was invited. I would also recommend that if you in Denver, that you check out the rest of the series. It will be well work the time and money.
