LUTHULI LEGACY PROJECT (article first published : 2004-03-16)

Cabinet tasked the Department of Arts and Culture (DAC) in 1998 to facilitate the setting up of new monuments; museums and other symbolic representations in order to address the historical imbalances in the heritage sector.

The Inkosi Albert Luthuli project is one of the National Legacy projects approved by cabinet and is aimed at paying homage to Chief Luthuliís life, his works and philosophy. Chief Luthuli is the first South African Nobel Peace Prize winner.

The Chief Albert Luthuli Museum in Stanger is one of the nine pilot national legacy projects approved by Cabinet in 1998. The objective of the national legacy project is to establish commemorative symbols to acknowledge the role of all South Africans whose heritage was marginalized under apartheid rule.

Chief Luthuli was an educator, church deacon, businessman and traditional leader and ANC president until his death in 1967. Active in the struggle against colonial rule in South Africa, he was recognised for his outstanding efforts in fighting for human dignity, political freedom and social prosperity.

The Chief Albert Luthuli project will be launched on March 21, 2004 at Stanger in Kwa-Zulu Natal. This project has a number of components, the main one being the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Museum. An event to launch the legacy project comprises of four different sites where activities will be held.

The sites include Inkosi Albert Luthuliís house; the church where his grave is located; the Kwa-Dukuza Municipal grounds where Inkosi Luthuliís public sculpture will be unveiled, and Kwa-Dukuza Stadium at Groutville, where a public event to launch the museum will be held.
