Ndaba Mandela, Grandson of Nelson Mandela Visits Malden Catholic High School


Last week, Malden Catholic High School rolled out the red carpet for Ndaba Thembekile Mandela, grandson of world-famous Nobel Peace Prize recipient Nelson Mandela. The Malden Catholic community invited Mayor Gary Christenson, and surrounding city Mayors, Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria, former Melrose Mayor Rob Donlan, and Medford Mayor Breanna Lungo-Koehn to participate in the program that honored Ndaba for continuing his grandfather’s grueling fight for justice and racial equality. Ndbaba shared his life’s work and insights with the entire student body.

Ndaba is an accomplished author, activist, entrepreneur, and Co-Founder and Chairman of Africa Rising Foundation and has committed his life to empowering African youth through mentorship, education, and leadership development. He works to ensure that the lessons, voice, and message of his beloved grandfather, one of history’s greatest teachers and humanitarians, will endure. Mayor Christenson presented Ndaba with a citation on behalf of the City thanking him for his unwavering leadership, dedication, compassion, and commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of others and for making the world a better place.
