Overview

Nelson Mandela is a trailblazer. Born in 1918 as the son of a Thembu chief in South Africa, he grew into a world-respected and widely admired political activist and Nobel Prize-winning statesman. Jailed in 1962 for his political activities by the white-minority apartheid regime, he became a symbol of resistance to white oppression in South Africa. In 1994 he became the first president of the "new" South Africa under black-majority rule.
