Lives That Changed the World: Nelson Mandela
- Thursday, December 13
- 12:00 noon
- ACB 240
Imprisoned 27 years for standing up for what he believed, Nelson Mandela persevered and was miraculously able to galvanize the world around his struggle to end apartheid...even from behind bars at South Africa’s brutal and remote Robben Island prison.
Released in 1990, Mandela entered a world profoundly shaped by his dream, his homeland now one of multi-racial democracy. Against a backdrop of historical footage, this Nobel Peace Prize winner’s own story is told through the eyes of 10 people who were there and who were inspired by his vision.
Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch. Free snacks will be provided!
