Join us in continuing the work of Nelson Mandela
NorthStar Memorial Group, in partnership with the NAACP, is constructing The Nelson Mandela Human Rights Memorial at Skylawn Memorial Park in California. The monument, to be unveiled September 29, will be a platform for introspection, inspiration and education to advance the Nobel prize winner’s ideals of social justice, democracy and peace.
The monument’s design is a reflection of Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy. The shape reflects a translation of his birth name, Rolihlahla, which means “pulling the branch of a tree”. The rectangle in the floor of the monument is the same dimensions as the cell where he was imprisoned for 27 years. A series of quotations by the civil rights leader, reflect his deepest thoughts during three distinct phases of his life – before, during and after imprisonment.
