Winnie Madikizela-Mandela Celebrated At The Windybrow Arts Center

The Mandela Legacy Foundation has partnered with the Windybrow Arts Center and the Women’s History Museum of Zambia in celebrating the life and legacy of struggle icon, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela on Saturday the 19th August from 13:00 to 14:00. Thari – The Moral Fabric – dialogue and exhibition’s theme this year is Weaving the Inclusivity Tapestry, looking at society’s leading ladies, the likes of our late, great stalwart. Winnie’s life has largely influenced and shaped the political landscape of not only South Africa but the continent. This podcast series serves as a tool to tell her story from those closest to her, also telling the stories of various other women she impacted.

The podcast is designed as a tool to educate young women on icons like Winnie who have paved the way and whose legacies stand the test of time. 

“Mandela Legacy and Windybrow began their relationship as partners with a passion to elevate African stories. The Windybrow Arts Centre became a home where our children’s storybook, Granddad Mandela was launched. Observing with frustration, the lag in infusing these stories in popular narrative to drive access, MLF and Windybrow have partnered with the Women’s History Museum of Zambia to present an animated podcast edition celebrating the story of Zanyiwe Winnie Madikizela- Mandela. This will come together in a first of a kind exhibition in the month that marks women’s contribution to the South African struggle. Just a month shy of the stalwart’s 85th birth milestone. We are thrilled to be sharing in this important work”
