  1. The World Remembers an Icon

    Tributes continue to pour in following Nelson Mandela’s death at the age of 95. President Obama, who is likely to travel to South Africa in the coming days, described Mandela as a man “who bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice.” Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a friend and fellow Nobel laureate of Mandela’s, was visibly emotional as he led a service of remembrance at St. George’s Cathedral in Cape Town. The ANC government faces the enormous challenge of managing the funeral rites, as international leaders and countless South Africans flock to pay tribute to the beloved statesman.
