VIRTUAL “MANDELA: STRUGGLE FOR FREEDOM” TOURS

 

Nelson Mandela was one of the most famous human rights defenders of the 20th-century and the face of a movement against racial injustice. His unbreakable will inspired people around the globe to mobilize for human rights and contributed to a worldwide crusade demanding racial equality. A winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and South Africa’s first democratically elected president in 1994, Mandela devoted his life to fighting apartheid and creating a more just society.

Join a virtual public tour of the new special exhibition, Mandela: Struggle for Freedom. The exhibit traces the history of the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa, with Nelson Mandela as one of its central figures. The virtual public tour includes a video presentation featuring Chief Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, Arielle Weininger, and live Q&A moderated by Museum personnel.

Members: Free; Non-members: $10

You will receive a confirmation email with information about how to access the tour in advance of your selected date.
