Freedom fighter, revolutionary, Anti-Apartheid activist, philanthropist, political leader – Nelson Mandela really needs no introduction. To mark the centenary of the iconic South African leader’s birth, Southbank is putting on an exhibition charting Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela’s turbulent journey from radical protester to international anti-Apartheid figurehead, commemorating Mandela’s life and career from 1918 – 2013. During Mandela’s years as a fugitive, arduous political trials and 27 years of incarceration – his commitment towards equality and justice famously never waned. Mandela stated his fellow citizen’s and his own struggle against Apartheid taught him ‘courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.’ In 1994, Mandela made history by simultaneously becoming the country’s first democratically elected president, as well as black leader. Remind yourself how Mandela not only changed South Africa’s political landscape, but his legacy had a domino effect on the rest of the world. After all, in today’s troubled times, we could all learn a thing or two from Mandela’s teachings.
