By enforcing this policy, the government intended to remove all black South Africans to their tribal homelands and keep them there. Eventually, 80 percent of the South African population would be forced onto roughly 13 percent of the land. The white South African government then announced that blacks would lose their South African citizenship as they were absorbed into the new tribal homelands. Desmond Tutu watched all this from the sidelines. He was anxious and concerned, but he had not yet found the right venue for protesting these changes.

Tutu was greatly impressed by Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park. In one of the great parks of central London, a place is set aside for anyone and everyone to get up and speak, on any subject they please. Nothing they say, no matter how radical or strange, can be used to stop them. This may seem a small thing to British or Americans, accustomed to freedom of speech, but for the Tutus it was a revelation. There was no such place in South Africa. Tutu studied theology at King’s College, part of the University of London.

Desmond Tutu was no longer in South Africa, however. For the second time in his career, he had left his homeland for Lesotho. The Crisis Comes BISHOP OF LESOTHO Being dean of Johannesburg had been impressive enough. Now Tutu was called to an even higher office: bishop of Lesotho. Desmond and Leah moved back to Lesotho.
