Ahead of its release later this month, the POTUS will welcome the film's stars Idris Elba and Naomie Harris, as well as Nelson Mandela's daughters Zindzi and Zenani Mandela. The event is set to take place Thursday (Nov. 7).
"Knowing what a strong relationship President Obama has with President Mandela, it's an honor for this film to be shown at the White House," said The Weinstein Co. co-chairman Harvey Weinstein.
Back in June, Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama paid a visit to South Africa and spoke with Mandela's family as the global leader remained in the hospital.
The Justin Chadwick-directed film premiered in Johannesburg on Sunday, following Elba's health scare.
Long Walk to Freedom will hit theaters Nov. 29.
