Imagine if Nelson Mandela had today’s access to social media when he was fighting for freedom? Would he have spent 27 years in prison? This project isn’t new, with the video released (almost) two years ago to this day, but the sentiment is no less profound in this day and age of social media activism around the things happening in the world that really matter (I’m nodding to you, #peaceforpalestine and #bringbackourgirls). Check out this awesome 4-minute simulation of Mandela’s life through social media under the cut.
