Madiba Honoured with Fresco in France: The largest Mandela mural ever

While South Africans waited with bated breath to hear the results of the May 2024 elections, a reminder of the man who symbolises democracy in South Africa and the world has taken up space gorgeously thanks to a new fresco painting in France.

In Ville de Créteil, Nelson Mandela beams in epic proportion at a height of a whopping 44 meters. Not only is the fresco the sum of talent and breathtaking detail, it is also reportedly the largest mural of Madiba in the world as the Embassy of France in South Africa shared.

"Named after Nelson" exhibition launch, 2024.04.25, Houghton: [Set of 265 Still images]

A team of design researchers at Loughborough University in the United Kingdom in collaboration with Celeste Mckenzie, creative industries practitioners and heritage specialists in South Africa used graphic heritage as a lens to find out how much or how little information there is about Madiba in six locations named after him in the Gauteng Province. Through graphic heritage, the exhibition reveals as much about absence as it does about presence. It straddles the established but contested domain of heritage interpretation, presentation, and representation.

The exhibition is designed to inspire public engagement with its content and encourage visitors to contribute their thoughts, feelings, and observations to eventually shape the exhibition's public image. The case study locations are colour-coded to match the unique colours of the South African national flag.

Dulcie: Du cap a paris, enquete sur i'ssassinat dúne militante anti-apartheid

En 1988, à la veille de l’élection présidentielle, François Mitterrand est à l’Élysée, Jacques Chirac à Matignon. Dans ce contexte de cohabitation entre la gauche et la droite, l’assassinat de Dulcie September, 52 ans, est hautement symbolique. La représentante de l’ANC en France est abattue deux ans avant la libération de Nelson Mandela et six ans avant l’élection de ce dernier à la présidence sud-africaine, le 9 mai 1994. Dulcie September a-t-elle été éliminée dans le cadre d’une action d’' escadrons de la mort ' sud-africains alors actifs en Europe, ou bien a-t-elle été spécifiquement ciblée parce qu’elle en savait trop sur le contournement de l’embargo dans le domaine de l’armement et du nucléaire ? Derrière l’assassinat de Dulcie September se dessine un véritable polar géopolitique...

History of South Africa: From 1902 to the Present

South Africa was born in war, has been cursed by crises and ruptures, and today stands on a precipice once again. This book explores the country's tumultuous journey from the Second Anglo-Boer War to 2021. Drawing on diaries, letters, oral testimony and diplomatic reports, Thula Simpson follows the South African people through the battles, elections, repression, resistance, strikes, insurrections, massacres, crashes and epidemics that have shaped the nation.

Tracking South Africa's path from colony to Union and from apartheid to democracy, Simpson documents the influence of key figures including Jan Smuts, Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko, P.W. Botha, Thabo Mbeki and Cyril Ramaphosa. He offers detailed accounts of watershed events like the 1922 Rand Revolt, the Defiance Campaign, Sharpeville, the Soweto uprising and the Marikana massacre. He sheds light on the roles of Gandhi, Churchill, Castro and Thatcher, and explores the impact of the World Wars, the armed struggle and the Border War. Simpson's history charts the post-apartheid transition and the phases of ANC rule, from Rainbow Nation to transformation; state capture to 'New Dawn'. Along the way, it reveals the divisions and solidarities of sport; the nation's economic travails; and painful pandemics, from the Spanish flu to AIDS and Covid-19.

Dear Comrade President: Oliver Tambo and the Foundations of South Africa’s Constitution

In his annual presidential address on 8 January 1986, ANC president Oliver Tambo called on South Africans to make apartheid ungovernable through armed action and militant struggle. But unknown to the world, on that very day, the quiet-spoken mathematics teacher and aspirant priest turned reluctant revolutionary had also set up a secret think tank in Lusaka, which he named the Constitution Committee, giving it an ‘ad hoc unique exercise’ that had ‘no precedent in the history of the movement’.

Knowing that all wars end at a negotiating table, and judging the balance of forces to be moving in favour of the liberation movement, Tambo wanted the

ANC to hold the initiative after the fall of apartheid. Assisted by Pallo Jordan, he instructed his new think tank to formulate the principles and draft the outlines of a constitution that could unite South Africa when the time came to talk in the fledgling days of freedom and democracy. The seven-member team, including Albie Sachs, Kader Asmal and Zola Skweyiya, started deliberating and reporting to Tambo. In correspondence, they typically addressed him as ‘Dear Comrade President’.

Drawing on the personal archives of participants, Dear Comrade President explains how the purposeful first steps were taken in the making of South Africa’s Constitution. Why and how did this process happen? What were the first written words? When and where were they put on paper? By whom? What values did they espouse? And how did the committee’s work fit into the broader struggle? This book answers these questions in new, paradigm-shifting ways.

Mandela: The Lost Tapes

Mandela: The Lost Tapes, an inspiring story featuring rare, unheard audio of 20th-century icon Nelson Mandela. The documentary reveals never-before-heard audio from Stengel’s interviews with the Nobel Prize winner, freedom fighter, and former South African president. Hours of rare recordings detail the turning points of Mandela’s life, key moments that shaped a revolution and the man who was to bring freedom to his nation.
In this Audible Original, Stengel relives his intimate chats with Mandela, attempting to answer the questions ‘What made Nelson Mandela who he is?’ and ‘How can the rest of us be more like him?’
In Stengel’s own words: “It’s partly the story about how Mandela and I wrote his memoir, Long Walk to Freedom. But much more than that, it’s a story about our unusual friendship, my struggle to learn who Mandela really was, and my quest to understand what makes a human being great.”
Mandela: The Lost Tapes provides an intimate look at who Nelson Mandela was beyond his carefully curated public persona. Through Mandela’s own words, he reveals his extraordinary journey to becoming one of the greatest leaders in modern history.

Gandhi and Mandela: Born in the R.S.A

An original, well researched and illustrated book, which sheds new light on the influence which Mahatma Gandhi may have had on Nelson Mandela – entitled Gandhi and Mandela: Born in the R.S.A.
Based on some thirty years of research, Haswell puts forward three propositions:

Firstly, that both Gandhi and Mandela, suit-wearing attorneys, were transformed and reborn as political leaders, by life changing experiences in the city of Pietermaritzburg – hence the title Born in the R.S.A.;
Secondly, that as a youthful leader Mandela certainly adopted the nonviolent campaign strategies developed by Gandhi; and,
Thirdly, that in the treason trials which Mandela had to endure, his courtroom demeanour, legal tactics, and even phrases such as “ if needs be I am prepared to die”, so closely resemble those used by Gandhi, in South African courts, some fifty years earlier, that the author contends that Mandela can be considered to be a legal disciple of Gandhi.
