nelson and nelson's admirer

mr g's company has just published this biography of nelson mandela, written by lord peter hain, a tireless anti-apartheid campaigner back in the day. i was lucky enough to attend the launch at south africa house in trafalgar square. peter hain indulged in amusing and thought-provoking reminiscences and wise insight into the issues that were faced, talking to namatemba tambo, oliver tambo's daughter and now the high commissioner. in these uncertain times it was especially moving and inspiring to hear of nelson's capacity for recognising the humanity in everyone, and for forgiveness, healing and reconciliation. this lady was an active campaigner for years and sat proudly in the front row, being acknowledged as an unsung heroine. here she was having her picture taken next to the book cover. i enjoyed her joy :)
That must have been so exciting! 2018 is the centenary of the birth of our Icon :-)

It's very powerful to have living history at an event like this. I love the combo of the person and the promotion. Gives it more meaning than just a money maker.
