Nelson Mandela
Nelson Mandela
He personifies struggle. He is still leading the fight against apartheid with extraordinary vigour and resilience after spending nearly 27 years of his life behind bars in South Africa before he became the country's first black president.

He has sacrificed his private life and his youth for his people, and remains South Africa's best known and loved hero. During his years in prison, Nelson Mandela's reputation grew steadily.
He was widely accepted as the most significant black leader in South Africa and became a potent symbol of resistance as the anti-apartheid movement gathered strength. He consistently refused to compromise his political position to obtain his freedom.
(1918 -)
