Spear of the Nation  Nelson Mandela:    The Authentic Era of South African Revolution

Guest, Dr. Tommy J. Curry, Associate Professor of Philosophy and African American Studies, Texas A&M University

Tata Madiba.


Nelson Mandela is dead and we should never forget his revolutionary leadership. We remember why he was imprisoned and how.
Madiba was a rare and fierce revolutionary leader. Tonight we talk about his leadership of Spear of A Nation.

Nelson Mandela, the former political prisoner who became the first president of a post-apartheid South Africa and whose heroic life and towering moral stature made him one of history’s most influential statesmen, died Thursday, the government announced. He was 95.

The death was announced in a televised address by South African President Jacob Zuma, who noted, “We’ve lost our greatest son.” No cause was provided.

Nelson Mandela, also known as Madiba, led the struggle to replace South Africa’s apartheid regime with a multi-racial democracy.

To a country torn apart by racial divisions, Mr. Mandela became its most potent symbol of national unity, using the power of forgiveness and reconciliation to heal deep-rooted wounds and usher in an era of peace after decades of conflict between blacks and whites. To a continent rife with leaders who cling to power for life, Mr. Mandela became a role model for democracy, stepping down from the presidency after one term and holding out the promise of a new Africa.

Madiba was a revolutionary leader. Tonight we talk about his leadership of Spear of A Nation.
