Mandela: The Journey to Ubuntu

National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
September 1-March 1

MANDELA: THE JOURNEY TO UBUNTU is in partnership with South African documentary photographer Matthew Willman - who was commissioned by The Nelson Mandela Foundation during the last ten years of Mandela’s life. The exhibit commemorates the life and legacy of former South African President Nelson Mandela through photographs by Willman as he revisited many of the locations that played an important role in South Africa’s route to racial equality and Mandela’s personal fight for freedom. MANDELA: THE JOURNEY TO UBUNTU also features artifacts from Mandela’s life on loan to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center from The Nelson Mandela Foundation. The museum joins Mandela 100, a year of commemoration engagement lead by The Nelson Mandela Foundation, challenging and inspiring organizations and individuals around the world to, "be the legacy" in 2018 - the centennial of Mandela's birth.
