Watch President Obama’s Visionary Speech At The Nelson Mandela 16th Annual Lecture.

Set from the Nelson Mandala 16th Annual Lecture, the event is a “unique platform to drive debate on critical social issues in South Africa and around the world.” Tuesday’s event marks the 100th anniversary of Mandela’s birth.

Except from Barack Obama’s speech July 17, 2018.

“Let me tell you what I believe. I believe in Nelson Mandela’s vision, I believe in a vision shared by Gandhi and King, and Abraham Lincoln, I believe in a vision of equality and justice and freedom and multi-racial democracy built on a pretense that all people are created equal and are endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights. And I believe that a world governed by such principles is possible and that it can achieve more peace and more cooperation in pursuits of a common good. That’s what I believe.”

President Obama
