Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela

July, 18, 1918 – December 5, 2013

The death of Nelson Mandela is resonating around the world. The BBC has a page dedicated entirely to his legacy, including images and a live social media feed of the latest coverage.

The South African Government website has an obituary page for its former president. This online obituary includes links to the text of his selected speeches dating back to 1951, tributes by world leaders, and information about the memorial service.  Also of note are President Obama’s remarks about the passing of Nelson Mandela.
