Gov. Dennis Daugaard is asking that all flags in South Dakota be flown at half-staff in memory of Nelson Mandela.
The former South African president died Thursday at the age of 95. Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years for opposing apartheid and helped dismantle the country's legacy of institutionalized racism. He was an inspiration for many around the world.
Daugaard's request is in accordance with a proclamation by President Barack Obama. Flags should be flown at half-staff until sunset Monday.
