Giants of Africa and the Nelson Mandela Foundation celebrated the “Mandela 100” Centenary to a star stubbed event in Toronto. In tandem with global celebrations recognizing his birthday, Giants of Africa hosted a monumental tribute event celebrating his life and work. The gala consisted of celebrations and discussions of how Mandela’s words of hope, change, and resilience still carries on today’s society. It is an understatement to say that Nelson Mandela had a profound impact on millions of people.
