"The music of my own flesh and blood goes right to my heart." - Nelson Mandela
Inspired by Nelson Mandela’s dream and Desmond Tutu’s hope when he named post-apartheid South Africa the “Rainbow Nation,” the evening explores Canadian and South African cultural identity through song and theatre.
We welcome actors Kim Sanssoucie and Batsile Ramasodi from Johannesburg. The pair will offer dramatic recitations of Mandela’s journals and diaries, attesting to the legacy of his dream.
