This Lecture is the grand finale of the Mandela100 Centenary celebration and the beginning of an annual tradition. A programme with cooperation from, among others:

Building a world beyond them and us

The Lecture will be delivered by writer and opinionista Sisonke Msimang (South Africa), an outspoken voice in the conversation about colour, exclusion, gender and decolonisation. In 2017, she published Always Another Country, a Memoir about Exile and Home and last year The Resurrection of Winnie Mandela. She is a regular contributor to The Guardian and The New York Times amongst others.

Msimang is also a gifted speaker presenting crucial themes through telling anecdotes. The two TedX Lectures she deliverd are exemplary.

The Lecture is organised by ZAM Magazine, platform of African changemakers in investigative journalism, photography, arts and opinion.
