Basic Bio

For over 40 years, Kumi Naidoo has been a voice amongst many for social, economic and environmental justice.

From his humble township upbringing in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, to his work as an anti-Apartheid activist, to his leadership of international NGOs,

Kumi has remained rooted in Martin Luther King’s Creative Maladjustment principles - refusing to normalize inequality and devoting himself to exposing injustice.

His journey into activism started at the age of 15, when he became an anti-apartheid activist.

He was involved in neighbourhood organising, community youth work, and mass mobilizations against the apartheid regime.

During the apartheid era, Kumi was arrested several times and was charged for violating provisions against mass mobilisation, and for violating the state of emergency.

            There are very few individuals in the world like Kumi Naidoo, who are able to speak truth to power and yet in doing so, capable of building alliances and bridges between people of diverse backgrounds and opinions. Kumi is a trusted and inspirational voice fighting for social, economic and environmental justice. His ability to engage with others through authentic story-telling and will leave audiences riveted and entertained. I have known him for years and I have always been impressed by his honesty, creative thinking and remarkable energy in all that he does- inspiring us to see beyond humanity’s greatest challenges and compelling us towards solutions and action.
