This week’s #ThrowbackThursday takes us back to 1990 when Nelson Mandela, then Deputy President of the African National Congress, arrived at the #UnitedNations to address the Special Committee Against Apartheid in the General Assembly. Friday, 25 years later, the first-ever #UN Nelson Mandela Rolihlahla Prize for outstanding contribution to the service of humanity will be awarded to Helena Ndume and Jorge Fernando Branco Sampaio at UN Headquarters. Stay tuned for special photos from the official #MandelaDay commemoration later this week. Photo credit: UN Photo/Pernaca Sudhakaran #TBT #UNGA #UN70 #NYC #History
