Transcript of Nelson Mandela
Nelson Mandela was an amazing person that wanted peace and equality, and to do this he risked everything and faced harsh punishments.
Mandela was born July 18, 1918 in Mvezo, South Africa. His father named him Rohlihlahla, meaning troublemaker. Perhaps his father knew of his son's future or maybe it was just a coincidence but Mandela was one of the key figures in the anti-apartheid movement. He was imprisoned for his efforts to end apartheid in South Africa. He was kept in an 8' by 8' cell for 27 years during which he maintained his health by jogging in place. (wiki, long walk to freedom)
A young Mandela.
Nelson Mandela was a very wise man, who like Gandhi came up with a lot of memorable and important quotes. His quotes are words of wisdom to everyone on how life should be thought about. He says that everyone is equal and no one should judge or be judged.

Apartheid was period of time in South Africa when black people were treated without respect by the rulers of the country, the Afrikaners or Dutch colonists. Around the mid 1900's people started to think this was bad. Many freedom fighters including Nelson Mandela began to protest against this unequal treatment. Many were imprisoned for long periods of time.

The African National Congress was founded in 1912 as a national liberation movement. For ten decades has still been a major political party that fights for a country where there is no racial, sexist, religious, or any other type of segregation. It was banned in 1960 after the Sharpville massacre. Nelson Mandela and others went underground with the ANC and in 1961 the Umkhonto we Sizwe, the military branch of the ANC was formed.
In 1994 the ANC won its first victory when Nelson Mandela was the first democratically elected president.
