Mandela & Pan-Africanism

Part of Africa Utopia

Find out more about Nelson Mandela and the Pan-Africanism movement in this guided walk around Nelson Mandela: the UK Centenary exhibition 2018.

When Nelson Mandela addressed the conference of the Pan-African Freedom Movement in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 1962, he encouraged African nations to ‘stand firm as a rock and not allow themselves to be divided by petty political rivalries whilst their countries burn.’ Did they listen?

Mandela was an icon of the movement, but his relationship to it was also complicated.

Come along to the guided tour and learn more about his relationship with the movement.
