Nelson Mandela exhibition coming to the Milwaukee Public Museum April 23
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A major announcement Tuesday, April 13 from the Milwaukee Public Museum.
MPM and America's Black Holocaust Museum are partnering for the United States debut of "Nelson Mandela: The Official Exhibition" -- a new, global-touring exhibition that takes visitors on a personal journey through the life of the world's most iconic freedom fighter and political leader.
It features previously unseen film, photos and the display of more than 150 historical artifacts and personal effects on loan from the Mandela family, museums and archives worldwide.
"This exhibit puts a spotlight on Milwaukee and it puts a spotlight on our entire state, while shining a light on an individual who spent his entire life fighting for justice and equity for all, many challenges and struggles that we still find ourselves in," said Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes.
The exhibition opens to the public April 23 and runs through Aug. 1.
