One of humanity’s greatest champions of all times slipped into eternity last Thursday. Nelson Mandela now belongs to us all as an example of the transformation of a people, a corrupt and racist system, and a country. President Mandela died last Thursday at the age of 95 and his life is being celebrated all week in South Africa. The world memorialized him on Wednesday at the FNB Stadium in Soweto with nearly 100 Heads of State present from around the world.
Today we’ll talk with Dr. Vernon Domingo who experienced the sting of racism first hand in his native South Africa after being expelled from his “coloured” university and blacklisted for 18 months in the 1970s.
We’ll also pay tribute to President Mandela with a flashback of his 1990 visit to Boston when my daughter, Dr. Lorna Thomas Farquharson, who with many other children sang for the Mandelas as part of the welcome entourage during that historic day.
Nelson Rolihlahla* Mandela... Patriot, Prisoner, President...Power Changer.
