The exhibition is jointly curated by the Apartheid Museum in South Africa.

London was both South Africa's colonial metropole and the headquarters of the international anti-apartheid struggle. It was also the venue for some of Nelson Mandela's most inspiring speeches. May his life, work and ideas inspire the kind of global movement for change humankind desperately needs. 

In order to mark the 2018 centenary of iconic leader Nelson Mandela’s birth, London's Southbank Centre has a free exhibition about his life, career, and commitment to equality and justice.

This exhibition explores the life and times of the leader and provides insight into Mandela’s journey from young freedom fighter to becoming the inspiration for an international movement against South Africa’s violent and oppressive apartheid system, and an emblem of an ongoing struggle to build a more just and equitable world.

This exhibit, which was opened by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, has various important artefacats from the life of the leader: his Robben Island Bible, the complete works of Shakespeare that were read during his 27-year prison sentence, pickaxes, and a letter to the British public. 

The exhibit will be on display until August 18.
