Tukufu Zuberi discussed Mandela’s legacy and his continuing impact today with Penn Today. It has been 100 years since the birth of Nelson Mandela, elected as South Africa’s first black president after being imprisoned by the apartheid government for nearly three decades. “Nelson Mandela made an international call for taking steps to build a strong nation in South Africa and a strong continent of nations,” Zuberi says.
