Nelson Mandela was born July 18, 1918, and died on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013. He was 95. Nelson Mandela was a politician and anti-apartheid activist and served as President of South Africa from 1994-1999 and was the first black South African to hold office. Nelson Mandela fought apartheid by working to change institutionalized racism and the inequality within social classes. His campaign for peaceful, non-violent defiance against the South African government and their policies paved the way for change. In 1962, Nelson Mandela was arrested on charges of inciting workers to strike and leave the country without valid documents. In 1964, Mandela was sentenced to life in prison for four counts of sabotage and served 27 years before being released in February, 1990. Mandela was awarded the Nobel Peace Price in 1993, just prior to being elected president of South Africa, and he established the Nelson Mandela Foundation in 1999 after leaving office. Since June 8, 2013, Mandela had been hospitalized for pulmonary conditions which had been afflicting him for many years.
