The exhibition Mandela: The Inspirational Style of a Revolutionary Statesman and World Leader is now open. Made of brightly colored, patterned silk, Mandela's "Madiba" shirts became emblematic of post-apartheid freedom, nonconformity, civil disobedience, and a commitment to the people. “Madiba” was also the affectionate nickname countless millions of admirers called Mr. Mandela.
