NBJC Honors the Life and Service of Nelson Mandela

As the world mourns the passing of one of the most beloved figures for peace and equality, the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) pauses to honor and celebrate the life and service of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.  His legacy will be remembered as an example of struggle, sacrifice, perseverance and ultimate victory through his passionate belief in the good of the human spirit. 

NBJC, a civil rights organization dedicated to the eradication of racism and homophobia, stands on the shoulders of Nelson Mandela and will continue to be led by his work for justice and fairness for all.  Through his unrelenting pursuit of racial equality and fight against segregation and poverty, Mandela dedicated his entire life to the liberation of all South Africans, while simultaneously displaying to the world why we are greater together than the differences that separate us. 

His journey from prisoner to president, embodies the fact that one person can make a difference in their community, nation and the world.  May Nelson Mandela forever live in the hearts of all those called to bring about a better, more safe and loving world where all people are treated equal.

The National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) is a civil rights organization dedicated to the empowerment of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and same gender loving (LGBTQ/SGL) people, including people living with HIV/AIDS.
