Once labeled as a terrorist by the United States and other nations, Nelson Mandela became a figure for tolerance and change in his home nation of South Africa and beyond.

Mandela, the first black president in his country, died Dec. 5, 2013.

On this episode of WOUB's digital series, "Global Perspectives," two South Africans talk to Atish Baidya about their experiences before and after Mandela became president, and what the man's lasting impact will be on their home country.
