Re: Nelson Mandela to address live via satellite capitalism's effects abroad

Former president of South Africa Nelson R. Mandela will discuss "The Export of American Capitalism: Encouraging or Impeding Democracy Abroad?" live via satellite from South Africa at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 12, in the Ralph S. O'Connor Recreation Center on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. Mandela's speech will be replayed at 8 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 18, in Shriver Hall Auditorium, also on the Homewood campus.

Mandela's speech is the final installment of the 2003 Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium, "The Great American Experiment: A Juxtaposition of Capitalism and Democracy," a lecture series examining how the two pillars of American society — capitalism and democracy — interact, and how their interactions affect Americans.

Mandela was elected president of the African National Congress in 1991 after being released in February 1990 from a nearly 30-year imprisonment for his role in the anti-apartheid movement. Along with Frederik Willem de Klerk, Mandela won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and was elected to a five-year term as president of South Africa in 1994.

The lecture and its replay are free and open to the public. For more information, call (410) 516-7683, visit the MSE Symposium Web site at www.jhu.edu/mse or send an e-mail message to mse@jhu.edu.
