HeadlineJul 14, 2020

In South Africa, the diplomat and poet Zindzi Mandela has died at the age of 59. She was the youngest daughter of Nelson and Winnie Mandela.

Zindzi Mandela: “I think, as my father often used to say, it’s a story about how the human spirit has the ability to triumph over adversity. That’s the message, that irrespective of your circumstances, you can turn any negative experience into a positive, and you can be a major contributor to society.”
