Show appreciation for Nelson Mandela by continuing his legacy

Speak up and challenge the status quo

Nelson Mandela’s words and actions spoke volumes about his character [“A devoted champion for peace and social justice,” page one, Dec. 6].

I had an awesome college professor from South Africa who knew Nelson Mandela well. Mzamo Mangaliso has won many awards at UMass, but one of the best gifts he ever shared with me was the huge smile on his face when Nelson Mandela was released from prison.

I was taught by honest, hard-working people to fight for the rights of others.

— Keith Dougherty, Issaquah
