    • Documentary

Reverend Michael Battle’s latest book, “Desmond Tutu: A Spiritual Biography of South Africa’s Confessor,” gives an unprecedented closeup of one of the most visible figures of the anti-apartheid movement.

In that time, he became deeply acquainted with the spirituality that helped Tutu tackle apartheid. In today’s episode, he talks about what he learned from his mentor, how he came to be in that position as his mentee, who Archbishop Tutu was beyond his political work, as well as Rev. Battle’s thoughts on the current reparations movement. Rev. Battle is currently the Herbert Thompson Professor of Church and Society and Director of the Desmond Tutu Center at General Theological Seminary in New York.
