Mandela’s Legacy (Centennial), hosted by his grandson Ndaba Mandela

A quote from Nelson Mandela: “The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall”

As the months of January and February unfold, so do the celebrations marking the sacred moments of the civil right movements for the black people all over the world! After honoring Martin Luther King jr in January, we are now turning to pay tribute to the other iconic leader Nelson Mandela (Madiba), the anti-apartheid figure, here in Portland. There will be the presence of his grandson Ndaba Mandela, as the very distinguised host of the event.

The musical aspect of the event will feature an amazing Haitian band, Balans (zouk, kompa music genre), their presence will be highly symbolic, given the fact that Haiti was the first black nation to free themselves from the oppression of European slavery. A DJ from Ghana, Solo+ guest DJs (Dullah, PIZ) will entertain you with the quintessence of Afro-World music!

February being celebrated as “Black History Month” with lots of events commemorating it, this Mandela’s legacy night will also stand to mark Madiba’s centennial, if he were still alive today!

Both the leaders of our struggle, Mandela and MLK jr., had always preached the message of peace, tolerance and equality in the world we all hope for, particularly during these uncertain times we are all facing, nowadays! However, no matter how difficult it can be, that legacy will continue with a person from a new generation like Ndaba Mandela, to carrying it on!

COME CELEBRATE WITH US, ALL COLOURS, ALL WALKS OF LIFE! (just dress casual nice, if you don’t have an African or Caribbean garment!)
