Kick Off to Nelson Mandela International Day Jax

Wednesday, July 17, 2019 from 6-9 pm

Join some of Jacksonville’s foremost social justice leaders as we celebrate the ideals of Nelson Mandela and support the life-changing work being done right here in Jacksonville.


The United Nations declared July 18 to be Nelson Mandela International Day in honor of the former statesman’s legacy and contributions during his personal journey from prisoner to President. Join us in welcoming Dr. Makaziwe Mandela, the eldest daughter of Nelson Mandela, to Jacksonville on July 17 to celebrate the First International Mandela Day in the State of Florida. 


Nelson Mandela believed that everyone has the ability, and the responsibility, to change the world for the better. The events surrounding Jacksonville’s first Nelson Mandela International Day, including the presence of Dr. Makaziwe Mandela, will lead to great positive change in Jacksonville.

This evening celebration kicks off the Nelson Mandela International Day events with:

  • A seated dinner
  • Spoken word entertainment
  • Addresses by Khalil Osiris and Dr. Mandela
  • Awards presentations to some of Jacksonville's own Change-Makers 

Please consider joining us at this extraordinary event and help us both honor Nelson Mandela and continue his work in pursuit of his vision of diversity, human rights and social justice. We look forward to making history together.
