The Association for the Study of African American Life and History mourns the loss of Nelson Mandela, a truly great figure in world history. He rose from the ranks of the oppressed and led in the struggle against South Africa's system of racial apartheid. He demonstrated the courage and fortitude to withstand nearly three decades of solitary imprisonment and the humanity to lead his people and his multiracial nation down an unseen and unpredicted path of peace and reconciliation. His life's story now belongs to untold generations to come, for he represents the best of what we can become.
