“No white person has done more for South Africa than Trevor Huddleston.”
- Nelson Mandela
Bedford-born Anglican priest Trevor Huddleston became known as Makhalipile ('dauntless one') for his tireless activism against the increasingly draconian apartheid laws in 1940s and 50s South Africa. He changed the lives of many South Africans through actions great and small, from providing a 14 year-old Hugh Masekela with his first trumpet, to being an early influence of Desmond Tutu. What does Trevor Huddleston make of his birthplace in 2017? What is he thinking as he stares out onto Silver Street?
