Nelson Mandela: Your memories

The world is remembering Nelson Mandela, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, world renowned human rights activist and former South African president who died December 5, 2013. He was 95.


As the first black president of his nation, Mandela broke barriers and helped dismantle the country’s racist apartheid regime. Imprisoned for his activism for 27 years, he forgave his captors when released and went on to be South African president for two terms in the 1990s, before peacefully transferring power to his successor.


A memorial service is being held to honor the late South African leader in Johannesburg Tuesday, with more than 90 heads of state and tens of thousands of South Africans attending.


Are you there? Or watching from afar? Ever have the chance to meet Mandela, or take a photo with him? How are you remembering the former South African president? Share your thoughts, memories and tributes -- please include original photos or videos -- and your stories will be used in CNN’s coverage.
