The Center for African Studies at Howard University joins the international community in deeply mourning the passing of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. A renown human rights and anti-apartheid activist, Madikizela-Mandela campaigned endlessly for her late husband Nelson Mandela's release from jail during the white minority rule in South Africa, and kept the global spotlight on the injustices of the apartheid system. She was a symbol of hope for many and truly will be remembered as the Mother of the Nation.
