Monday, 17 October 2011 17:16 Published in Photographs

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 photograph Luthuli stands with Yengwa and a policeman at a European airport. Both Yengwa and Luthuli are travelling to Oslo, Norway to attend the Nobel Peace Prize award ceremony. By this time M B Yengwa was living in London in exile. He met with Luthuli en route to Norway so that he could attend the ceremony with his friend.
