“His Day is Done” tribute to Nelson Mandela by Maya Angelou

Nelson Mandela was laid to rest yesterday in South Africa. Today in South Africa, it’s a national holiday—the country’s first National Reconciliation Day without Mandela. We’ll hear “His Day is Done,” a tribute that the US State Department released, written by American poet Maya Angelou in honor of Nelson Mandela. (Photo: Flickr/Dan Monsieurle)
