To commemorate the life and memory of the late Nelson Mandela, VIBE veteran Kevin Powell penned a post for ESPN about the South African legend’s global impact. Here is an excerpt of his piece, “Changing Lives a World Away”: I had never heard of Nelson Mandela, of South Africa, of apartheid, until I was an 18-year-old college freshman at Rutgers University in the mid-1980s. At that time I had no interest in politics, in community, and “democracy” was a very strange and elusive word to me, something we had been taught in American schools, but which felt like it belonged to the people in our textbooks, forever frozen in history. But there was something happening at Rutgers, and on campuses everywhere, called “the anti-apartheid movement,” which was bringing together students of different races and cultures, in a way our country had not seen, I read and was told, since the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Except this time the struggle for freedom was in a foreign land, a magical but terribly oppressive and violent place called South Africa, where the white minority had been ruling the black, “colored” and Indian majorities for many decades.

When Spike Lee released the critically acclaimed film Do The Right Thing in 1989, the world was exposed to the racial tensions going on in Brooklyn, New York. For years after the movie debuted in theaters, the work of art was referenced as one of the most accurate depictions of racism in America’s backyard. Well, for the hip-hop generations that weren’t even born when the film was released, the youth will be able to experience the flick in real life (hopefully). Vulture: Do the Right Thing is coming to Broadway — when? Would you want to be onstage yourself
The 2013 American Music Awards were a little bit tamer than, say, the VMAs and Grammys this year … a little. It was Lady Gaga who stole the show though, first riding in on a white horse on the red caret and then having a presidential love affair in the Oval Office with R. Kelly for her performance of “Do What You Want.” MiIey Cyrus couldn’t beat Gaga with her psychedelic kitten , but America’s sweetheart Taylor Swift turned heads in her sparkly, gold mini-dress. The guys, including R
