Virtual Museum Tour - Nelson Mandela: The Struggle for Freedom
The Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center presents Mandela: Struggle for Freedom.
This exhibit traces the history of the fight against apartheid in South Africa, with Nelson Mandela as one of its central figures. With immersive environments, Mandela promotes human rights with a clear message that all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
Nelson Mandela was one of the most famous human rights defenders of the 20th Century and the face of a movement against racial injustice. His unbreakable will inspired people around the globe to mobilize for human rights and contributed to a worldwide crusade demanding racial equality. A winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and South Africa’s first democratically elected president in 1994, Mandela devoted his life to fighting apartheid and creating a more just society.
