Updated: May 30, 2018


November 13, 2017. In a soft announcement made last week, Ndaba and Kweku Mandela, the most prolific of the Mandela grandchildren leading the continued legacy of Nelson Mandela, have appointed Robinne Burrell as Board member and Director of Technology for Generation Hip Hop (GHH), a global youth empowerment and development program, initiated by the Universal Hip Hop Museum and the Mandelas’ Africa Rising Foundation.

GHH’s mission is to lead a worldwide mobilization of nations through the unifying bonds of music as a means of connecting culture with civic action. Through satellite youth empowerment programs, workshops in STEM education, mentorship and advocating for disenfranchised communities, the organization aims to help solve the symptoms of the world all within the auspices of continuing Nelson Mandela life’s commitment to peace and unification.

As Board member, Robinne will oversee the strategic direction for innovation to expand the organization’s reach and advise on GHH’s digital media agenda. Robinne was recently named "Code Breaker of the Year" in an annual award granted by the Digital Diversity Network, sponsored by Google and YouTube and was featured in Forbes Magazine as "Top Five People in Technology You Want to Work With Now".
