Nineteen years ago, in 1994, Nelson Mandela spoke at Howard University before many of the current freshmen were born, but that did not stop them from setting up an exhibit in his honor, according to a press release from Howard on Sunday, Dec. 2013.

Since November 2013, when Mandela was ill, the nation has been anticipating his death. At that time, students at Howard created a memorial in honor of the courageous humanitarian.

See the video of his biography.

Students were interviewed and asked what their thoughts were about such an extraordinary leader, and their reply was:

He taught love, a powerful lesson. He was courageous. He taught us never to give up.

A Howard University spokesperson informed the listeners that Howard’s motto is: “Truth & Service,” and ended with the thought that Mandela stood for that as well.

Howard students will pay tribute to the life and legacy of Mandela on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 6:30 pm at the Cramton Auditorium.

Nelson Mandela was South Africa’s first Black president and died Thursday, December 5 at the age of 95.
