Lange Middle School's Minority Achievement Committee (MAC) Scholars held a tribute to Nelson Mandela on Tuesday, Feb. 25.

The MAC Scholars spoke about the hardships and victories Nelson and Winnie Mandela for their annual Black History Month celebration. The students narrated the Mandelas' lives from Nelson and Winnie's points of view, often using direct quotes to better illustrate the former South African leaders' voices.
