In recent months, much has been written about Nelson Mandela’s remarkable life, from rural villager to leader of a guerrilla movement to prisoner to president. But what of the next generation of South Africans – half the population is under 25 – in whose name the liberation struggle was fought? In the lived experience of Nelson Mandela’s grandchildren and other young South Africans we explore the “living legacy.”
