The life and Legacy of Nelson Madiba Mandela

“…When a man has done what he conceived to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore why I will sleep for eternity”. (Nelson Mandela 1994)

This is a work of art that combines history, fiction, and Non-fiction to tell a story of a genius, a Hero, a Father, peace maker, and global Icon of our time.

In this dramatic episode, we encounter a protagonist (Nelson) whose beginnings and eventual demise to glory shaped African political thoughts and moral philosophy of our times. Nelson Mandela, who led South Africa from apartheid to democracy, was a humble, eloquent and inspirational figure who advocated peace, democracy and human rights.

Mr. Mandela's story is full of tragedy with an enduring comic relief that would take your breath away. Pondering on his upbringing, his young adult life, his involvement in political and revolutionary movement that helped stop Apartheid in South Africa, you will be moved to learn more about him; his arrest and imprisonment for 27 years, and eventual emancipation from grass to grace by becoming the first black president South African ever produced away from decades of white domination and rule is enigma to many who knows or came to know about him afterward.

-Hold you breath and find this play on screen and imaging how much you will be touched to change for the best; imagine millions of dollars resting on your shoulders as you make this movie, grab a coffee, drink some tea , laugh, smile, cry, and blossom in joy and happiness and become the man or woman of excellence as you go through daily struggles of life and existence!
