  • Nelson Mandela was born in

    from white people.
    Most black people had no jobs, were
    very poor and could not vote because
    of this.

    and went away to study
    law when he was a young
    man. He wanted to help
    free black people from
    apartheid.

    black people at a town called Sharpville.

    taking part in these protests.

    Nelson Mandela spent
    27 years in prison.

  • Free at last
    He was released on 10 February 1990 after the laws were changed.
  • He won the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize for
    this and then became president of South
    Africa in 1994 – and black people were
    allowed to vote for the first time.
  • 1995 Rugby World Cup
    In 1995 the Rugby World Cup was held in South Africa Mandela said he wanted whites and blacks to forgive each other.
  • He worked to bring peace to the
    country and to help black people.
    He retired in 1999 and now travels the
    world helping other countries solve
    their problems.
  • Poem Invictus
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods made meFor my unconquerable soul.
    In the fell clutch of circumstanceI have not winced nor cried aloud.Under the bludgeoning of chanceMy head is bloody, but unbowed.
    Beyond this place of wrath and tearsLooms but the Horror of the shade,And yet the menace of the yearsFinds, and shall find me unafraid.
    It matters not how strait the gate,How charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate:I am the captain of my soul.
