On Friday, Capitol Pressroom host Susan Arbetter paid tribute to the late Nelson Mandela today by presenting a conversation with Albany Law School President and Dean Penelope Andrews, a South Africa native, leading international scholar and human rights activist.
Andrews is co-editor of The Post-Apartheid Constitutions: Perspectives on South Africa’s Basic Law, which offers a range of perspectives on the rebirth of South Africa’s constitution. The book features essays on the development on the final constitution, the human rights provisions, and the structure of South Africa’s government. Nelson Mandela said of the book, “This book helps us to understand more fully how our constitution was created, and why it took the form it did.”
Mandela died Thursday night after suffering a lung infection. Immediately after the announcement of Mandela’s death, President Obama ordered American flags to be lowered to half-staff until Monday in honor of the world-renowned leader.◄ Back to News
