“A New Pattern for Democracy”: Lessons from South Africa’s Nobel Peace Prize-winner Albert Luthuli

Event Details

Featuring Rev. Dr. Scott Couper, minister and teacher of Centre Congregational Church and member of the WWAC Board

Scott’s lecture covered Albert Luthuli’s biography, emphasizing the United States and American Congregationalism’s influence on his theology and politics. Luthuli’s biography will be used as a springboard to comment on fundamental ingredients of effective and moral governance: democracy, education, and human rights. The lecture will offer a warning against blind political allegiance to either a political party or to a cult of personality. Instead, a primary accountability to values and principles ought to supersede obeisance to partisan politics and individual fealty.
