Archbishop Tutu Doll
Desmond Tutu is a world famous South African cleric and activist who rose to worldwide fame during the 1980s as an opponent of apartheid.
In 1984, Tutu became the second South African to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Tutu was the first black South African Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, South Africa, and primate of the Church of the Province of Southern Africa (now the Anglican Church of Southern Africa).
Tutu chaired the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and is currently the chairman of The Elders. Tutu is vocal in his defence of human rights and uses his high profile to campaign for the oppressed.
Tutu also campaigns to fight AIDS, tuberculosis, homophobia, poverty and racism. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism, the Gandhi Peace Prize in 2005 and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.

When we presented our dolls to the Bishop himself, the only thing he wanted changed was that the doll had to have underwear. "No," Tutu said "this won’t do…. the doll must have underpants because I wear underpants."
After that, we were given permission to sell our one-of-a-kind Bishop dolls.
