Nokukanya Lutuli was a teacher when she married her husband, Albert, in 1927. He became president of the African National Congress, and in 1960, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his non-violent opposition to apartheid. Nokukanya was always deeply involved in community and social issues, and in his acceptance speech for the Peace Prize, Albert said his wife deserved the prize as much as he did.
