Local Community Reacts to Nelson Mandela's Death

Community reflects on the life of political and civil rights leader, Nelson Mandela.
December 5, 2013 - At age 95, Nelson Mandela has passed away and he is leaving a remarkable legacy behind.

Political expert and Mercyhurst University professor Dr. Michael Federici says Mandela was an amazing political leader; one who knew how to connect with people not only in South Africa but all around the world.

Mandela was a man who wanted to minimize war and violence.

Those who met Mandela like, Muhammad Ali's attorney, Ron DiNicola, say he was a leader unlike any other, whose messages transcended race, ethnicity, and religion.

Local activists Gary Horton and his brother, Erie County councilman elect (and former NAACP president) Andre Horton, say he is a political leader incomparable to anyone else.
