The Elders, a group of global leaders brought together by Nelson Mandela, have posted a moving video tribute to their friend and founder to mark the first anniversary of his death.
A book drive marked the first anniversary of the death of Madiba. Education was close to his heart and people are encouraged to donate books to beat illiteracy. The Nelson Mandela Book Drive is a partnership between the Nelson Mandela Foundation and The Book People.
Nelson Mandela inspired many people through his thoughts, words and deeds, not least among them a variety of musicians, from pop singers to opera composers. Songs calling for his freedom reverberated around the world in the 1980s; others celebrating his release inspire audiences still.
Nelson Mandela's death prompted introspection for Nevelia Moloi; the young South African writes about the 'half history' she learned and now questions, to truly understand how Madiba's life affected her own.
