Professor Mangaliso Remembers Nelson Mandela
December 9, 2013
On December 6th Isenberg associate professor of management Mzamo Mangaliso and two other scholars were interviewed by Jeffrey Brown on PBS NewsHour for their assessment of Nelson Mandela's legacy. "He left us with a template of leadership--what a leader should be," observed Mangaliso, who grew up in South African townships during apartheid. From 2006 to 2008, during a leave of absence from Isenberg, Mangaliso served as President and CEO of that country's National Research Foundation, which combines the sweep of our National Science Foundation and National Endowment for the Humanities. Mandela's leadership, honesty, and integrity, continued Mangaliso, gave him the ability "to unite people under one umbrella, so that each and every one of the citizens, whether they be colored, Indian, African, or white could identify" with him.
