Chief executive of the non-profit foundation, Sello Hatang said Tuesday that its activities will include discussions on the challenges of poverty and racism in South Africa, which moved to democracy after the end of white minority rule in 1994.

The foundation will also launch a Mandela exhibit in September in Australia which will travel to Europe and the United States over the next five years. Several books will be published, including one containing letters written by Mandela when he was imprisoned during apartheid.
