A Photographic Exhibition at Howard University in Honor of Nelson Mandela

My husband and I, both Howard University alumni, are just back from a special event at the Howard University.  It was a gala reception at the Howard University Founders Library.  It previewed the premier of a new exhibition.  It is entitled "Mandela: Character, Comrade, Leader, Prisoner, Negotiator, Statesman.”  It is an awesome photographic exhibition of the many stages of Nelson Mandela's life and impact on South Africa and the world, replete with direct quotations from Nelson Mandela.  

We also got a chance to meet the new interim president of Howard University, Dr. Wayne A.I. Frederick, who was very gracious.  There were also other dignitaries there, such as the South African Ambassador to the United States.  I really enjoyed the event.  I hope you get a chance to view this new exhibition at The Moorland-Spingarn Research Center Gallery at Howard University.
