AAlbert Luthuli was the first African to win a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to end apartheid in South Africa. He lived in a small house near Stanger in the KwaDukuza area, KwaZulu-Natal. which now forms a part of the overall museum. The museum is filled with stories, writings, and digital catalogues of the Albert Luthuli’s work.

 Chief Albert John Mvumbi Luthuli, Africa’s first Nobel Peace Prize Laureate in 1960, was President-General of the African National Congress (ANC) from December 1952 until his death in 1967. Throughout his years as President–General he was an active struggle icon, although he entered the political race relatively late in life at the age of 54.

Did You Know?
AAlbert Luthuli was the chief of the Zulu people in his home-town of Groutville in KwaZulu Natal. Luthuli was an ordained minister, and well known for his peaceful and eloquent preaching. This put him in prime position to take over the ANC in Natal from John L Dube in 1946.

AAlthough Luthuli was not in favour of armed struggles, it is said that he was ambivalent to the ANC’s shifts. His young protégé, Nelson Mandela was to play a large part in the forthcoming activities of the ANC, eventually taking over the reins from Luthuli.

TThe garden at the museum is a special place to sit and reflect on the life of one of the forefathers of South African democracy. The museum states its mission as, “To conserve, uphold, promote and propagate the life, values, philosophies and legacy of the late Chief Albert Luthuli in the struggle against apartheid oppression respect for human rights as well as life devotion to a non-violent resolution to world problems.”
