Detroit Branch NAACP Remembers Winnie Mandela


Detroit Branch President Rev. Dr. Wendell Anthony issued the following statement in regards to the recent death of Winnie Mandela.

“The passing of Winnie Mandela marks a significant point in the life of those who sacrificed so much to obtain justice, freedom, and dignity. Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, known as “Nomzamo” (the mother of the nation), was the reason that many of us in the west were well acquainted with Nelson Mandela. For 27 years, from 1963- 1990, while Nelson Mandela was in prison, it was Winnie Mandela who was the face of the Anti- Apartheid Movement.”
