Nelson Mandela and Bishop Tutu wanted to stop racism in Africa and bring everyone white or black at peace. He was the chairman of the South Africa Truth and Reconciliation Commission or TRC for short. The TRC was created by Nelson Mandela's Government of National Unity in 1995 to help South Africans for their past being subjected to cruel abuse due to their skin colour. Him and Nelson Mandela wanted to stop racism for black people. It also was for people who were racist to ask them why are they racist? Plus to change their beliefs on black people. It was also called The Forgiveness project". The person who did a racist offence had to knowledge what they did and why they did it. It was to bring people in Africa together and to stop racism. It did not just affect the people of Africa it also affected the government as they changed their views on racism.

Bishop Desmond was born on October 7th of 1931 in Klerksdorp, South Africa to Aletta Tutu and Zachariah Zilio Tutu, his father was a teacher, and his mother was a chef and custodian for the school of the blind. Bishop Desmond was the one of three children to his parents, both of his siblings being girls. When he was 12 his family moved to Johannesburg. One day while he was walking down the street with his mum he met Trevor Huddleston, he was a priest at the time, as Huddleston walked past the pair he had tipped his hat to the bishops mother, it filled him with shock that a white priest would tip his hat to a working black woman. That gave him the idea that racism could be dealt with. After graduating from Johannesburg Bantu High School he went to get a higher education from Pretoria Bantu Normal College that way he could become an educator, and in 1954 he graduated from The University of South Africa. He spent three years as a high school teacher before he began to study theology. He became ordained in 1960. In the years 1962-1966 he went to England to get more education about theology until the point where he could become a Master of Theology. From 1967-1972 he was teaching theology in South Africa before returning to England for three years as the assistant director of a theological institute in London, England. In 1975
