.@Reappropriate: Nelson Mandela’s death is a call to action


Jenn ReappropriateAsian American feminist blogger Jenn Reappropriate wrote a heartfelt tribute to Nelson Mandela and how he impacted her life.

 “I am still inspired by Nelson Mandela and his unwavering commitment to social change. I am still inspired by a man who faced 27 years of imprisonment and emerged unbroken. I am still inspired by a man who started life as a rural villager and ended it a president.”

Jenn writes about it from a young person’s perspective, too young to understand apartheid or to have really witnessed it, even from afar.Yet Mandela still touched her as he has touched so many other people.
