"We can neither heal nor build, if we continue to have people in positions of influence and power who, at best, pay lip service to affirmative action, black empowerment and the emancipation of women, or who are, in reality, opposed to these goals; if we have people who continue with blind arrogance to practise racism in the workplaces and schools, despite the appeal we made in our very first address to this Parliament. We must work together to ensure the equitable distribution of wealth, opportunity and power in our society." ~ Nelson Mandela during the State of the Nation Address, Parliament, cape Town, South Africa, 9 February 1996 #BeTheLegacy #Mandela100 #FindTheMadibaInYou

The Nelson Mandela Speeches Database consists of interviews, speeches, addresses, messages, media releases, testimony, lectures, toasts, tributes, oaths and declarations made by the late Nelson Mandela.

These encompass all of the roles that Mr Mandela filled both before and during his retirement.

This is an ongoing exercise as we continually identify additional speeches made by Mr Mandela. Every speech is verified prior to accessioning.

Therefore, this database serves as a source for accurate quotations by Mr Mandela, with the added contextualisation of his full remarks.

This database is a work in progress and if you have any information to support its development, please contact us art nmf@nelsonmandela.org

“I knew as well as I knew anything that the oppressor must be liberated just as surely as the oppressed. A man who takes away another man’s freedom is a prisoner of hatred, he is locked behind the bars of prejudice and narrow-mindedness. I am not truly free if I am taking away someone else’s freedom, just as sure as I am not free when my humanity is taken from me. The oppressed and the oppressor alike are robbed of their humanity.” ~ Nelson Mandela from Long Walk to Freedom, 1994
