National Center for Civil and Human Rights

Mandela water feature

This water feature and fountain resides outside The National Center for Civil and Human Rights, which opened in June. I watched many people approach this panel of glass that rises out of the fountain and press their hands onto it. This panel has Nelson Mandela’s name and a quote of his inscribed upon it. The quote reads:

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others
