Jamaica Welcomes The Mandelas


Even as the world continues to mourn the passing of the incomparable Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, the first black president of South Africa, the sadness is tinged with celebration as many in his country and around the world remember his life with joy.

This Wordless Wednesday, we highlight the 1991 visit to Jamaica by Mandela and his then wife, Winnie. Did you know that Jamaica was at the forefront of the international campaign against apartheid in South Africa?
