 Welcome to Our Own Voices Live with your hosts: Angela Thomas and Rodney Smith

Our topic today is, The transition of President Nelson Rolihlahla (Madiba) Mandela


Nelson Mandela

It is amazing that the first Black president of South Africa lived the life that he lived. He has been an ICON for South Africa, Africa and the rest of the world for a long time. He suffered after fighting for the freedoms of his people similar to Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King, slain still in his youth and the other living to be almost 100 years old and became the first Black President of South Africa. Both men leaving a mark that maybe none other could have and maybe no one else will do later.

"For now, let us pause and give thanks for the fact that
Nelson Mandela lived -- a man who took history in his hands,
and bent the arc of the moral universe toward justice."
President Barack Obama
Let’s take a moment to reflect on the live and times of President Mandela.


Let's discuss a question.  With President Mandela’s transition, are we nearing the end  of the old guard that helped usher in so many changes across the globe and who will step up to continue the dream and the legacy?
