Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)
the world was the former president of South Africa. Mandela ended the apartheid system internationally  advocating the human rights  and equality around the globe.

Mandela was the leader of both peaceful protests and armed resistance against the white minority’s oppressive regime. He became the member of the African National Congress party in the early of the 1940s. Mandela was prisoned for almost three decades fighting for the civil rights, human rights and equality that was against the rule of the apartheid system which was eradicated in 1994 when he became the first black president  of South Africa.

His dedication, devotion, and continuation eventually landed him achieving his goal. He is the symbol of peacemaker around the globe and he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 19193. He was born on July 18,1918 in Mvezo Transkei, South Africa. He involved in the movement which was nonviolent was against the African government and its racial policies. Mandela was grown up in the village after his father had lost his status and fortune eating the harvest of maize, pumpkin, and beans.


Mandela lost his father only at the age of 9 years and he was adopted by someone else as his son. He learned how the black people lived before the white reached there. Black men shared their land, air,
and water, but the white men broke the fellowship and took all of the things themselves and started to rule over them. Mandela ran away from his home when his adopted father wanted to make his life properly plan and announced his marriage.

Mandela actively involved in the antiapartheid movement joining the African National Congress in 1942. The goal of the ANC was to transform the max grassroots movement and had to spend the prison for 27 years. After releasing from the prison, Nelson Mandela urged with the foreign power not to reduce the pressure on South African Government for Constitutional reform. In 1991 he was elected as the president of the ANC.

The liberation of South Africa was not possible without the Nelson Mandela and as per he said it wouldn’t happen if he wasn’t sent to the jail. Learning from the biography of the great leaders of the world, Mandela  became the international emblem of dignity and forbearance. He fought for the freedom to the black people and equality and human rights with peaceful manner, even forgiving the people who harmed him in the prison.

He was encouraged to free his people after the White had systematically humiliated, tortured and murdered many of his friends and sentenced him to prison. He was from the royal family he never came to seem that as equally with of any man. One of his great messages was reconciliation and never wanted to take the revenge with the white supremacy which inspired the world after he negotiated a peaceful end to segregation and urged forgiveness for the white Government who sent him to jail.

“ As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison,” Mandela said after he was freed in 1990. He was the one, who focused the attention of the world on apartheid, the legalized racial segregation which was enforced by the South African Government until 1994.

He has remained devoted champion for the social justice, peace in his own land and around the world, even after his retirement from politics in 1999 until his death in 2013. He is remembered as a hero and one of the great leader in the world as his life symbolize for the struggle against the apartheid in South Africa.
