International Mandela Day was founded after Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday celebration. Held on his birthday, Mandela Day encourages everyone to give 67 minutes of their time to honor the 67 years Mandela spent fighting for civil rights.
If you don't know where to start, your Milwaukee Public Library can help. We have books on community leadership and neighborhood improvement available for check-out. For other ideas and to see what the rest of the world is doing, you can visit the official Mandela Day website. You can also stop by the Central library's Centennial Hall at 12pm for today's special event.
