Museum of African Art Displays Condolence Book for Mandela

Over the next week, the public can sign a condolence book that the National Museum of African Art will send to former South Africa President Nelson Mandela’s family.

“I am profoundly saddened by the passing of former President Nelson Mandela, a beloved and powerful citizen of South Africa and the world who worked throughout his life for peace, justice and equality,” museum Director Johnnetta Betsch Cole said. “There are no words that can adequately capture the extraordinary impact of his life and work.”

Visitors can sign the condolence book during regular museum hours, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Friday through Dec. 13.

Condolences also may be posted to the museum’s website and Facebook page.
