North Central Florida Remembers Nelson Mandela
Published December 6th, 2013
GAINESVILLE -- The world is mourning the loss of one of the most influential people in the last decade -- Nelson Mandela.
Mandela was the first black president of South Africa after spending 27 years in prison. He was also a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate recipient.
Mandela spent most of this year in and out of the hospital -- there were even reports that he had died.
But on Thursday, the news on Mandela's death quickly made its way across the world, affecting people both young and old, including many right here in North Central Florida.
TV20's Trent Kelly shows us how they are remembering the man many are calling one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century.
