When former South African President Nelson R. Mandela died on Dec. 5, more often than not, admirers mentioned the name of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King in the same breath.
Many don’t reflect on this but it was Nelson Mandela's strong Christian faith that made him do what no other has done before — defeat apartheid.
Nelson Mandela left us much to celebrate, and also much to ponder. Where does the movement for freedom and justice go from here, both in South Africa and in the rest of the world?
Since South African human rights icon Nelson R. Mandela died, a steady stream of people of all shades and ethnicities have been making pilgrimages to the South African embassy on Massachusetts Avenue in Northwest D.C. to pay homage.
