Watch the video to learn more about Nelson Mandela
It is important we remember Nelson Mandela's story because now that he is gone he can not tell people in his own words why he was imprisoned and what he believed in. It is important we educate ourselves and our children and even their children because we can not forget his legacy. He did not just change South Africa, he changed the world. he showed us that one person can make a huge difference.
South Africa's Hero
I asked everyone in our class if they had an understanding of who Nelson Mandela and what he did and only 37% did. What if the rest of the world was like that? What he did is too important to forget or not know. In the video it will show you a lot of his background and how he came to be the President of South Africa.
The Apartheid Government
Apartheid is a Afrikaans word meaning separation. In this case meaning separation between black and white. They believed that black people should not have the same anything as white people. My dad told me how sometimes he could not go to school because the Apartheid government was boycotting the schools. Even if you were a police officer, if you were black you were not treated with respect.
In the December of 2012 he spent almost three weeks in the hospital because in 1988 he was diagnosed with tuberculosis, an infection that damages your lungs. Even though he fully recovered, it left his lungs very weak. He was hospitalized again in march and april 2013 , for Pneumonia. It carried on until September 1 when he was in critical condition. On December 5th 2013 Nelson Mandela died
