Nelson Mandela and George W. Bush, 2005

Join the Immigrant and Refugee Resource Village of Albuquerque on Sunday, Dec. 4, for a celebration and commemoration of the life and ideals of heroic South African prisoner, patriot and ultimately post-apartheid president of the vibrant multicultural South African nation, Nelson Mandela at the Third Annual Nelson Mandela Commemoration. Mandela, a civil rights bastion who was set free in 1990, became one of the great leaders of this world through his fight for equality. This Nobel Prize Laureate (1993) successfully negotiated a peace with the apartheid government and then rose to lead a newly unified, rights-conscious nation in 1994. This important community event is free, naturally, and takes place at the African American Performing Arts Center at Expo New Mexico from 4-7:30pm. (August March)
