Today would have been Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday.
The South African political leader, who died in 2013, fought against apartheid in South Africa, had a long history of public service, and believed in eradicating poverty.
People are celebrating his legacy with #MandelaDay, a social media campaign to inspire positive change in our world. Luminaries like Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Bill Gates are posting their memories of Mandela, along with their own take on the message that each person has the ability and responsibility to make positive difference in the world.
