Mandela House 907-8106 Ngakane Street Soweto 1804, South Africa

Mandela Family Tree

In front of Nelson Mandela's old and storied house, now a museum, is a small and unassuming tree. Buried underneath its gnarled and weathered trunk are each of his children's and grandchildren's umbilical cords; tying them to their land, their history, and their ancestors.

Where would yours be?
