The life, death, and legacy of the first black president of a free South Africa was celebrated Tuesday afternoon with a special presentation at Ohio State University-Mansfield.

Students gathered in a Conard Performance Hall to learn about Nelson Mandela, who passed away at age 95 in December.

The program was conducted by Associate Professor of African American and African Studies, Scopas Poggo.

This was one of several events at Ohio State- Mansfield to celebrate Black History Month.

The film "Fruitvale Station", about a young San Francisco man who was shot and killed by Bay Area Transit Police on New Year's Day in 2009, sparking outrage, will be shown next Tuesday night at 7 in the Eisenhower Student Union.
