Standing Tall


When Robert V. Taylor was growing up in South Africa, religion saved him from a life of loneliness and pain. But as he got older, religion began to conflict with his homosexuality and his political beliefs--namely, that blacks should have equal rights as whites and that apartheid should be banished.

Today, Robert V. Taylor is chair of The Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation, an activist and a public speaker. He is also the author of the new book, A New Way to be Human. Check it out!
