Watch: Barack Obama Delivers 16th Annual Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture

This free event gives everyone the ability to become part of the event this Centenary year. Also watch highlights of past speakers

The annual Nelson Mandela Lecture invites prominent people to engage in dialogue on social issues, and this lecture is one of the most significant presented by the Nelson Mandela Foundation. The focus in on creating conditions for bridging divides, working across ideological lines, and resisting oppression and inequality.

For most of his life, Nelson Mandela fought for democracy and equality. His presidency was defined by his efforts to solidify the fragile democracy of South Africa, and by his lessons on the politics of ‘bridge-building’ over the politics of division.

The 16th Annual Nelson Mandela Lecture will be held in Joburg this year and will be delivered by Barack Obama, who is expected to address a crowd of over 4000 people on Tuesday, 17 July at the Ellis Park Arena. The former US President's lecture will be themed around "Renewing the Mandela Legacy and Promoting Active Citizenship in a Changing World”

 The Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture is a unique platform to drive debate on critical social issues in South Africa and around the world. Previous speakers include global thought leaders and change makers, including: Presidents Bill Clinton, Thabo Mbeki, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Mary Robinson and Michelle Bachelet; UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed; Nobel Laureates Kofi Annan, Wangari Maathai, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and Muhammad Yunus; Professors Ariel Dorfman, Thomas Piketty and Ismail Serageldin; and philanthropists Bill Gates and Mo Ibrahim. 

Last year, the lecture was delivered by United Nations Deputy Secretary-General, Amina J Mohammed. Her compelling speech was based on "Centering Gender: Reducing Inequality through Inclusion".
