Historical Context

*Apartheid was happening
*South Africa was getting its own constitution which divided South Africa into nine provinces
*It stated that there were going to be independent organizations supporting democracy

Speech Summary
*Date that speech was given and where: Oslo, October 15, 1993
*Nelosn Mandela's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech
*Mandela talks about the war with racism
*Nelson Mandela talks about segregation and apartheid
*This speech has many emotional appeals
*This speech is mainly about equal rights for blacks and stopping segregation against them

Word Choice
*Nelson Mandela's word choice made you feel many emotions
*He had many emotional appeals
*Repeated words: We, South African/South Africa, and apartheid
*Mandela used more emotional appeals than logical appeals because he wanted his audience to feel something
* An example of one of his emotional appeals is, "These countless human beings, both inside and outside our country, had the nobility of spirit to stand in the path of tyranny and injustice, without seeking selfishness."
Call To Action
"Let the strivings of us all, prove Martin Luther King Jr. to have been correct, when he said that humanity can no longer be tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war.Let the efforts of us all, prove that he was not a mere dreamer… Let a new age dawn!" Nelson Mandela was saying that he wanted everyone to follow Martin Luther king Jr.'s dream to stop segregation and apartheid. He wants a new age to begin.
Logical Appeals
Nelson Mandela uses good points for his logical appeals rather than facts. For example, "Neither should it ever happen that once more the avenues to peaceful change are blocked by usurpers who seek to take power away from people, in pursuit of their own, ignoble purposes." This is logical because his point is that people shouldn't take away our rights and power for their own selfish goods.
Emotional Appeals
"He too, grappled with and died in the effort to make a contribution to the just solution of the day which we have had to face as South Africans." This is an emotional appeal because it makes you feel an emotion. It makes you feel sad that people died because they were fighting for something they believed in. nelson Mandela used a lot of emotional appeals in his speech.
