leave a comment »

It’s Regina Mundi day in South Africa. Regina Mundi is the largest Roman Catholic church in South Africa located in Orlando East, Soweto, a populous black urban residential area within the city of Johannesburg. Due to the role it played as a place of gathering for the people of Soweto in the years before, during, and after the anti-apartheid struggle, it is often referred to as “the people’s church” of “the people’s cathedral.” In 1997, Nelson Mandela established 30th November as “Regina Mundi Day” to honor the church.
