Black Christ and the Spirit of Albert Luthuli Collection Arts Exhibition

Ronald Harrison's famous anti-apartheid painting, The Black Christ, was displayed at The Black Christ and the Spirit of Albert Luthuli Collection Arts Exhibition as part of the Cape Town Visual Arts Festival in 2007 at St George's Cathedral, Wale Street, Cape Town.

Painted in 1961, the Black Christ had long been the subject of argument and controversy. The painting depicts former African National Congress leader Chief Albert Luthuli as Christ being crucified by then prime minister Hendrik Verwoerd and his justice minister, John Vorster.
