In recognition of his efforts to bring an end to racial discrimination and injustice in South Africa through peaceful methods, Luthuli was awarded the 1960 Nobel Peace Prize, in 1961.  In his acceptance speech he said “Our vision has always been that of a non-racial, democratic South  Africa which upholds the rights of all who live in our country to remain there as full citizens with equal rights and responsibilities with all others.”


In this seven page typed letter to family and friends, John Reuling, a close friend of Chief Luthuli, recounts his experience in Oslo, Norway, where he attended the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony at which Luthuli received the prestigious award in person.
