Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born on July 18, 1918. He was the first South African president to be freely elected by the people of his country.
Mandela was born in a small villiage in the province of Cape. At the age of seven, he became the first member of his family to go to school. It was here that his teacher, who had trouble pronouncing Rolihlahla, gave him the name Nelson.
Mandela was an anti-apartheid activist and the leader of the African National Congress and its armed wing (Umkhonto we Sizwe). He was sent to jail for activities he participated in while he led the struggle against apartheid. He spent 27 years in prison, most of this time was spent in a jail cell on Robben Island. To the people who were against apartheid, Nelson Mandela was a symbol of freedom and equality. To those who supported the apatheid government and its ideals, however, he and the ANC were believed to be communists and terrorists.
Mandela was released from prison in 1990. It was also at this time he began to push for peaceful reconciliation and negotiations, rather than violence. This helped to lead South Africa's peaceful transition from a whites-only suppression to a multi-racial democracy, and also led to him being the first democratically elected president of South Africa. Since the end of apartheid, Mandela has been widely praised, even by people who used to think of him as an enemy.
Mandela has received more than one hundred awards over the past forty years. The one award that most people know of is the Nobel Peace Prize, which he was given in 1993. He is still a celebrated and respected elder statesman and he continues to give his opinion on many current affairs.
Nelson Mandela, a man who gave his freedom to fight for the freedom of his countrymen, will surely live on in history as one of the greatest people of our time.
