WASHINGTON (AP) -- A memorial tribute for Nelson Mandela on the campus of Howard University in Washington has been canceled because of winter weather.

The program to honor the legacy of South Africa's first black president was to be held Tuesday evening. The school says the tribute will be rescheduled for January.

Mandela visited Howard University in 1994 and received an honorary doctor of laws degree. Thousands of people saw him speak on campus.
