Nelson Mandela (1918-2013) was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, political leader, and philanthropist who served as the President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. Born in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, Mandela was initially trained as a lawyer and became involved in anti-apartheid activism in the 1940s, joining the African National Congress (ANC) in 1944.
In 1962, Mandela was arrested and convicted of sabotage and conspiracy to overthrow the government. He spent the next 27 years in prison, much of it on Robben Island. During his imprisonment, he became an international symbol of resistance to apartheid and the face of the global anti-apartheid movement.
After his release from prison in 1990, Mandela continued to work for an end to apartheid and negotiated with the South African government to establish a multiracial democracy. In 1994, he was elected President of South Africa in the country’s first fully democratic election. Mandela worked to heal the divisions caused by apartheid and promote reconciliation between the country’s different racial and ethnic groups.
Throughout his life, Mandela was a tireless advocate for social justice and human rights, and he received numerous awards for his work, including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993. He is widely regarded as one of the most important and inspiring figures of the 20th century, and his legacy continues to inspire people around the world.
