Yesterday Nelson Mandela left us. He left us a better world. He left us inspired to make it even better ourselves.
After being imprisoned for 27 years, Mandela led the struggle to end apartheid in South Africa and became the country's first black president. He died yesterday at his home in Johannesburg at age 95. Today on the WFUV Question of the Day we're remembering Mandela and celebrating his life in song. Please leave your suggestions in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.
Here's what we played:
"Free Nelson Mandela" - The Specials
"Township Jive" - Ladysmith Black Mambazo
"Ordinary Love" - U2
"Mandela (Bring Him Back Home)" - Hugh Maskela
