Today, we celebrate one of the greatest characters of the last centuries, an example of fight, a
model of life that everyone should try to follow in order to give a chance to our world to be
more beautiful: Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (18 th of July 1918 – 5 th of December 2013).
Inspired by one of his quotes “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use
to change the world”, African Lisbon Tour believes into education about history without
taboo. This is the best way to bring this generation and the next ones to the light.
The light of knowledge and respect about the past with the aim of understanding today’s world better.
Slavery, colonization, apartheid, racial segregation… are such subjects that need to be taught.
We hope that decision-makers will stop being satisfied just by making good speeches because
we need actions NOW!
Thank you so much Madiba for your inspiration and for illuminating the world by your
memory and your wisdom.
