Archbishop Tutu’s Connection to Atlanta
Archbishop Tutu made history with Atlanta-based Coca-Cola in the mid-80’s by persuading the company to divest its assets from South Africa until apartheid ended. His connection to Atlanta continued at Emory University where he was a Visiting Professor at the Candler School of Theology from 1991-1992 and again from 1998-2000.
He also received honorary degrees from Emory, Clark Atlanta and Morehouse universities.
