Nelson Mandela Madiba - New Yorker cover
Oil painting by artist Kadir Nelson

“He was clearly a leader. I wanted to make a simple and bold statement about Mandela and his life as a freedom fighter. The raised fist and the simple, stark palette reminded me of posters and anti-apartheid imagery of the nineteen-eighties. This painting is a tribute to the struggle for freedom from all forms of discrimination, and Nelson’s very prominent role as a leader in the anti-apartheid movement.”

Madiba Legacy – Quotes

Impossible - quote Nelson Madiba Mandela
It always seems impossible until it’s done.

“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”

Nelson Madiba Mandela
Change the world - quote Nelson Madiba Mandela
We can change the world and make it a better place.

Step Inside Truth a Steampunk Coffee Shop in Cape Town, South Africa

This radically designed steampunk-themed coffee shop was created by Heldane Martin who considered the form factor of espresso machines and coffee roasters to be somewhat similar to the Victorian futuristic fantasy style found in the aesthetic of steampunk. The hope was also to personify Truth’s attempt at roasting the very best coffee by offering a perfectly executed space.

Thando Hopa, model from Johannesburg

Thando Hopa is a beautiful 30yo model (as well as lawyer and albinism activist) from Johannesburg.

I now realize that I have a platform to inspire young girls, and as someone who never had a role model who looked like me when I was growing up, I now hope to be able to show that albinism can be beautiful and is just another kind of normal.

People living with albinism still face tremendous stigmatization, persecution and even murder in many African countries, including South Africa, due to traditional beliefs.
