In his 95 years of life, Mandela was a strong force against racism and discrimination worldwide. After ten days of mourning, Mandela will receive a state burial on December 15th. News 25 sat down with the president of the Gulfport National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (N.A.A.C.P.), Ruth Story, about the legacy of the man that meant so much to the fight for equality. Story says, “Nelson Mandela gives me hope for us as a people, as Americans, that we would strive to make our country as fair. The kind of man and the desire and hopes that he had, we have to portray that so others will see that in us and know that it is not alright to be slack, that we must continue the fight.” President Story hopes that Mandela's legacy will continue to unite all minorities and demographics in a continued effort to equality worldwide.
