Obama’s currently on his African tour, and the President made sure he paid his respects to Nelson Mandela’s family as Mandela is in critical condition after a series of illnesses. Today, Obama chose to visit the prison where Nelson was jailed, paying respects and physically viewing a prison that represented racism and apartheid in South Africa, and to show this to his two daughters and wife. Check out a picture of the epic visit in the gallery.
