Dr. Hudson spends quality time with Archbishop

Dr. Hudson had the privilege of meeting Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu this week on board Semester at Sea. Among human rights activists, he’s often compared to Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr., but Tutu demurs at those comparisons. The South African cleric jokes that he won the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize mostly because the Nobel Committee was looking for an anti-apartheid figure whose last name was easy to pronounce. “What I am is a good captain,” he says. “I utilize the talents and brilliance of the people on the team, and when the team plays well and wins, I get the kudos.” Hudson discussed tourism in South African with the Archbishop, who joined the Semester at Sea community for five days as the ship sailed from Mauritius to Cape Town.
