We have partnered with Imbawula to bring you Tambo Lives! – stories about or inspired by O.R. Tambo.
Tambo had a fierce love for all Africans and had a consciousness for women’s rights at a time when many dismissed it as a distraction. These values are more important than ever at this difficult time in our country’s history. The stories told will unpack these values in varied ways, through unique accounts that will explore his influence, personal anecdotes and his contemporary significance.

The sixth annual Oliver Tambo Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Congresswoman Maxine Waters.
Featured on Time magazine’s 2018 list of the 100 most influential people in the world, Congresswoman Waters has dedicated her life to fighting injustices, not only in her Los Angeles constituency, but across the world. She spent the better part of the 1980s actively protesting and mobilising support against the apartheid regime, including organising and participating in sit-ins at the South African Consulate and protesting against individuals who supported the South Africa’s apartheid regime.
In 2004 she was conferred with the Companions of O.R Tambo by the government of South Africa in recognition for her tireless efforts to fight apartheid.
