People of Note - John Allen

An exciting and thought-provoking permanent exhibition has just opened in Cape Town. It’s called “Truth To Power: Desmond Tutu and the churches in the Struggle Against Apartheid”. The exhibition is curated in partnership with the Apartheid Museum and celebrates the life and legacy of Archbishop Tutu. A man who has been very closely associated with Archbishop Tutu since 1986 is John Allen, who has written a number of books including a much acclaimed biography of The Arch called Rabble Rouser For Peace. On People of Note this week, Rodney Trudgeon spoke to John Allen about the exhibition and also about the work he did with Desmon Tutu.
