Mourners sing and dance outside Nelson Mandela’s old house in Johannesburg. In Pakistan, children gather around his portrait holding candles. Well-wishers leave flowers outside South African embassies in Beijing and New York.

People around the world are mourning Mandela, speaking out about the life and legacy of the former South African president and sharing how they drew inspiration from his strength and message of continuing the struggle against social injustice.

Here are some images from The Associated Press of people celebrating and remembering his life.
