Ndaba Mandela, the grandson of South African leader and humanitarian Nelson Mandela, spoke in the Coolidge Auditorium of the Library of Congress on June 27 with Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden about his recently published memoir, “Going to the Mountain: Life Lessons from My Grandfather.”
Drawing on the memoir, Mandela talked about growing up under his grandfather’s care and his own efforts to advance Nelson Mandela’s legacy through the Africa Rising Foundation, which he established in 2009.
