21 Icons is a project that “celebrates the lives of 21 extraordinary South Africans who have captured the global imagination with their dignity, humanity, hard work and selfless struggle for a better world.” The project includes shorts films with accompanying black and white portraits (taken by photographer Adrien Steirn) of some South Africa’s most influential people such as the late Nelson Mandela, Hugh Masekela, William Kentridge and Helen Sebide. The audio-visual exhibition is currently on at the Museum of African Design (MOAD) and will run until the 17th August 2014.

Happy BornDay to Malcolm X!!
"Children have a lesson adults should learn, to not be ashamed of failing, but to get up and try again. Most of us adults are so afraid, so cautious, so ‘safe,’ and therefore so shrinking and rigid and afraid that it is why so many humans fail. Most middle-aged adults have resigned themselves to failure."
