3 Ways of Remembering Nelson Mandela Around the Web

Nelson-MandelaWhen a man as inspiring and good as Nelson Mandela passes, it’s hard to do him justice in memorial. Some have tried – with timelines, photo galleries, and interactive spaces where readers can share their memories of him. Here are a few ways the news world is remembering Mandela:

1) The New York Times has a timeline and a photogallery, but my favorite part is the collection of his speeches, arranged by category.

2) The Washington Post and The Guardian, among other papers, opted for a timeline with photos, maps, and depscriptions of life events.

3) The ever visual La Repubblica went with a sleek, easy to navigate photogallery, and, knowing it wouldn’t be enough, added links to other galleries around the web.
