    The New York City Bar’s Committee on African Affairs is hosting a tribute to Nelson Mandela and a discussion of his legacy, with a presentation by Advocate Tembile Joyini, Legal Advisor to the Mission of South Africa to the United Nations.

    A hero has passed. Nelson Mandela was the father of South African democracy, which he created by leading the struggle for justice with fortitude and a commitment to equal rights for all. During his presidency, the South African Constitution, one of the most progressive documents of its kind, was adopted, as were other laws protecting fundamental rights.

    This program seeks to both honor Madiba’s accomplishments, and also reflect on the legacy of his achievements now that his successors govern. Experts on economics, business and human rights will join the discussion to consider how Mandela’s hopes for a “Rainbow Nation” have been realized.
