Nelson Mandela, the former president of South Africa and anti-apartheid revolutionary, has died at the age of 95.
The Nelson Mandela biopic “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” will get an audience from President Barack Obama, as well as a screening at the Kennedy Center hosted by Hillary Clinton.
The Embassy of the Republic of South Africa, the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists and TransAfrica came together to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s 95th birthday.
Everywhere he went in Africa, President Barack Obama was competing with history.
South African President Jacob Zuma said he found Nelson Mandela “in good shape and in good spirits” Monday but a video of his encounter with the ailing anti-apartheid icon belies those cheery words, showing him with a vacant look on his face.
