About the exhibition
A travelling exhibition developed by the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and the Apartheid Museum
What would you do if you were imprisoned for 27 years? Could you forgive your captors, or would you seek revenge? Nelson Mandela chose forgiveness – and he never stopped trying to build a better world.
Mandela earned international acclaim for his leadership in the fight against apartheid, a system of white supremacy in South Africa. Mandela: Struggle for Freedom looks at the story, the challenges and the accomplishments of Mandela and the movement that formed around him.
Follow Mandela into hiding after he is declared an outlaw, and then join him inside a replica of the prison cell that was his home for 18 years. Experience the bittersweet joy of his release, after 27 long years of imprisonment. Finally, witness South Africa’s first democratic elections, and find out about Mandela’s efforts to rebuild a nation shattered by racism and injustice.
