Scotland, Global Solidarity and Mandela
Scotland, Global Solidarity and Mandela Image
This exhibition tells the story of Nelson Mandela's relationship to Scotland and the role played by the Scottish people in the global struggle to end apartheid. The exhibition also documents Dundee's contribution to the anti-apartheid struggle and the campaign to secure Mandela's release from prison.

In Britain, opposition to the apartheid system in South Africa was led by the AAM. The Scottish Committee of the AAM was formed at a meeting held at the University of Dundee in 1976, and across the city there were regular rallies, pickets and boycotts opposing the apartheid state and its links to Britain. In 1985, Nelson Mandela was awarded the Freedom of the City of Dundee, a powerful demonstration of Dundonians' solidarity with Mandela and the people of South Africa.

The exhibition is in the Tower Foyer Gallery and is open Mon-Fri 09.30am-7pm, Sat 11am-4pm. There is no need to bring your Eventbrite ticket with you when you visit. If you also wish to see the exhibition in the Lamb Gallery during your visit, there is no need to book separately for that.

Booking via eventbrite.
