  7. 7. Discussion Nelson Mandela guided South Africa from the shackles of apartheid to a multi-racial democracy, as an icon of peace and reconciliation who came to embody the struggle for justice around the world. “I hate race discrimination most intensely and in all its manifestations. I have fought it all during my life; I will fight it now, and will do so until the end of days,” Mandela said in his acceptance speech on becoming South Africa’s first black president in 1994.
  8. 8. Continued “During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African People. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination.” “We have, at last, achieved our political emancipation.” “I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to see realized. But if it needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die." he told in the court.
  9. 9. Comment on Him by famous persons “He is the epicenter of our time, ours in South Africa, and yours, wherever you are.” Nadine Gordimer, the South African writer and Nobel Laureate for literature, once remarked.

That’s you can learn too.” Barack Obama says in his speech in an Award Giving ceremony in 2015 when he was awarded Mandela Award 2015.
