It is Nelson Mandela International Day, a day of service celebrated on July 18, Mandela's birthday. Mandela, the former President of South Africa and Nobel Peace Prize recipient, died at 95 on December 5, 2013. This is the first time the day has been celebrated since his death.
The day was created to honor Mandela and inspire others to carry on his efforts to "take responsibility for making the world a better place, one small step at a time," according to a statement from the Nelson Mandela Foundation initiative.
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
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?

" The Revolution that Nelson Mandela dedicated his life to achieving so many years ago has not yet been completed! Nelson Mandela was nothing less than the pre-eminent strategist, moral guide and military commander of the forces that attempted to carry out that Revolution. He played his role - and what a tremendous role he played! Let us honor his memory by striving to complete that sacred Revolution"

THE MYTH OF MANDEL
Black South Africans & the Pan African Congress (PAC) fought for land, so why did Mandela make the Raw Deal to surrender land to the APARTHIED government?
Why is Nelson Mandela celebrated and not Robert Sobukwe (South African political dissident, who founded the Pan Africanist Congress in opposition to Apartheid)?
Let The Truth Be Told!
People are screaming "Mandela is a Sell Out"!
Mandela was more focused on reconciliation than improving the lives of Black South Africans!

1990 Town Hall Meeting with Nelson Mandela of South Africa.
This meeting, held in New York and chaired by Ted Koppel of ABC Networks, formed part Nelson Mandela's first visit to the USA immediately following his release after 27 years in prison.
Much of the meeting focused on Nelson Mandela's advocating of sanctions against Apartheid South Africa, his support for the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO) as well as his close friendship with Yasser Arafat (of Palestine) and Fidel Castro (of Cuba).
It is important to note that this meeting took place in 1990, long before the world embraced Nelson Mandela or the ANC, yet, even then, Mandela stood firm and resolute on his and the ANC's policies even though it could have "hurt" his and the ANC's "image", for example his support for the Palestinian and Cuban people.
Mr Mandela, 95, led South Africa's transition from white-minority rule in the 1990s, after 27 years in prison.He had been receiving intense home-based medical care for a lung infection after three months in hospital.
In a statement on South African national TV, Mr Zuma said Mr Mandela had "departed" and was at peace. BBC
