Nelson Mandela Museum extends Madiba’s footprints across the country

August 30, 2011

The Nelson Mandela Museum’s commitment to share Chief Nelson   Mandela and Chief Albert Luthuli’s values and principles with communities across the country has expanded its footprints to the small town of Middelburg in the Eastern Cape. The exhibition of Mandela and Luthuli ‘In Conversation’ has been launched at the Middelburg Cultural History Museum.

Other versions of the exhibition, ‘In conversation: Mandela and Luthuli’, are presently housed in  Brandfort, Hammanskraal and Cape Town.

 The exhibition is renown for articulating the values of two of South Africa’s iconic Nobel Peace Prize winners, both former Presidents of the African National Congress, highlighting similarities in the strategic thinking behind their approaches to prosecuting the anti-apartheid struggle and achieving democracy.

 Dr Jabu Sithole, seasoned political analyst and Director for Historical Studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, led a discussion distilling the exhibition.

“The Launch of Mandela and Luthuli ‘In Conversation’ exhibition at the Inxuba Yethemba Municipality will help revive the political views and values of Chief Dalibhunga Nelson Mandela and Chief Albert John Mvumbi Luthuli in Middelburg.  This exhibition will also help learners in their studies.

We further view this exhibition as not just an educative exhibition but an exhibition that seeks to attract tourists. The exhibition will also attract people to come to the area”, said the Chief-Whip of the Inxuba Yethemba Municipality Ms Nondleko Mzinzi.

“The exhibition will in particular bring Chief Albert Mvumbi Luthuli and Chief Dalibhunga Nelson Mandela’s thinking and actions to life for the young people of Middelburg and the neighbourhood, providing crucial context and insight into the pillars that underpinned our liberation struggle, and allowing them to ponder the relevance of this thinking to societal conditions today,” said Ms Pumeza Mandela, the Museum’s manager for Education & Outreach.

 It is a key objective of the Nelson Mandela Museum – with sites in Mthatha and Qunu, in the Eastern Cape – to engage South Africans across the country, especially youth, in considering, debating and fostering the values and principles espoused and lived by Mr Mandela and those who helped to form him.
