About this Event
Nelson Mandela fought for social justice and human rights for 67 years. Join us for a 67 minute SPECIAL EVENT STREAM to premiere July 18th at 1pm ET. Inspired by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission held in South Africa at the end of apartheid, we will face racism through courageous listening and painful conversations, and find ways to heal together. We will speak with NMID 2019 Reflecting Freedom Award winners to hear their thoughts about systemic racism and the civil unrest happening across America and the world. And we will learn how the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela speaks powerfully to the need for reckoning and reconciliation in this historic moment.
