Mandela Matters

Mandela Matters is a campaign launched by TransAfrica to celebrate Nelson Mandela's 95th Year! In honor of his inspiring leadership and recognizing all the lessons we can learn from Mandela, TransAfrica has produced the following video to expose a new generation to the words of Nelson Mandela. Using #MandelaMatters to aggregate posts across social media forums, TransAfrica has been instigating discussion about why Mandela Matters to each of us. At the same time, we've encouraged people to think about what issues would matter to Mandela if he were healthy and organizing in the U.S. today. Below the video read some of the inspirational messages that have already come through the #MandelaMatters campaign and share your thoughts, reflections and inspiration with a comment on this page!
