At the height of the Duvalier dynasty’s power, he experienced Liberation Theology before it had been articulated and was the biographer of Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the Roman Catholic priest and Liberation Theologian who became Haiti's President.
In England, Leslie Griffiths is one of the very few people to have been elected President of the Methodist Conference whilst still a circuit (parish) minister. Tony Blair appointed him a working peer in the House of Lords. Principled and outspoken, he has a high media profile, is an impassioned ambassador for multiculturalism and does not shrink from controversy -- nor from public criticism of contemporary culture and politics.
