A Tribute to Nelson Mandela
“The stand you took established that here we have friends, fighters against racism who feel hurt because we are hurt, who seek our success because they too seek the victory of democracy over tyranny. I speak… of the millions of people throughout this great land who stood up and engaged the apartheid system in struggle. Let us keep our arms locked together so that we form a solid phalanx against racism … let us ensure that justice triumphs without delay.”
- Nelson Mandela's address to a Joint Meeting of the 101st Congress, 25 June 1990.
Erected 2014 by Embassy of South Africa.
