Nelson Mandela made one visit to Pittsburgh back in 1991. But one local man has a very special connection to Mandela.
University of Pittsburgh Professor Brenda Berrian said Thursday night that Nelson Mandela’s legacy is “wanting peace, justice and wanting all races to get along with each other.”
Nelson Mandela, who became one of the world’s most beloved statesmen and a colossus of the 20th century when he emerged from 27 years in prison to negotiate an end to white minority rule in South Africa, has died. He was 95.
