Remembering Nelson Mandela
People around the world are gathering to remember and celebrate the life of Nelson “Madiba” Mandela who died late on Thursday. Mandela led the fight against apartheid in South Africa. In 1963, he was arrested and spent the next 27 years in prison. Local and international pressure for his release escalated in the late 1980s, and on February 11, 1990, he was released from prison. Mandela was elected President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999, the first black South African to hold the office.
Crowds have grown outside Mandela’s house in Johannesburg as people all over the world remember and celebrate his life. To see more images and videos from the many vigils taking place today, visit these location pages:

If at any point over the coming days, weeks, and months to come, you find yourself confused as to how to navigate the thicket of pictures of Nelson Mandela coming at you in every country in the world, bear in mind this salient fact of history: it was once illegal in South Africa to have a picture of Nelson Mandela in your home.
