A Tribute to Mandela
Advocate Tembile Joyini, Legal Advisor to the Mission of
South Africa to the United Nations
Wednesday, January 29, 2014, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

This Event is free; Registration required.

A hero has passed. Nelson Mandela was the father of South African democracy, which he created by leading the struggle for justice with fortitude and a commitment to equal rights for all. During his presidency, the South African Constitution, one of the most progressive documents of its kind, was adopted, as were other laws protecting fundamental rights.

This program will not only laud Madiba's accomplishments, but also discuss the legacy of his achievements now that his successors govern. Experts on economics, business and human rights will join the discussion to consider how Mandela's hopes for a "Rainbow Nation" have been realized.
