Here in the Tri-State, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is celebrating Nelson Mandela Day with #6Words4Mandela.
From 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., well-wishers can visit the center and leave their reflections on note cards that will be displayed around the building. Later, the cards will be sent to Mandela and his family.
You also can share messages via the center's social media platforms by tagging posts with #6Words4Mandela.
#6words4Mandela is based on the concept of sharing social messages in six words or less. According Hastings the numbers six and four also have meaning: It was in 1964 that Mandela was sent to prison on South Africa's Robbin Island.
