Though the world knows him as Nelson Mandela, South Africa's anti-apartheid hero had five other names. Some of the monikers date from his childhood, while others reflect the respect bestowed upon South Africa’s first Black president. At birth he was given the name Rolihlahla Mandela by his father. In Xhosa, one of the official languages of South Africa, "Rolihlahla" means "pulling the branch of a tree." More commonly, it is said to mean, "troublemaker".

In the spirit of Mandela's legacy and his relentless agitation for inclusive freedom, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center will host a special broadcast of "Tuesdays with Terry". This meaningful discussion will be led by the show host, Terrence Sherrer Sr. We will explore the dynamics of equity and empowerment through the lens of the African American experience. With over 20 years of experience in community leadership, mentoring and social empowerment, Sherrer is a champion for the least of us to the greatest. Along with other community leaders, join us for this critical community conversation.
