We honor Nelson Mandela Born: July 18, 1918, in Transkei, South Africa. Nobel Peace Prize winner, South Africa’s first black president, and a man who spent 27 years in jail for a cause he told a court in 1964 that he was prepared to die for. Imagine growing up in a country where the government told you that your ancestors were wrong, savage and not even human. Growing up in South Africa under th…e Apartheid meant this was part of daily life. But Nelson Mandela was a fighter. Instead of bowing down to this unjust system, he became a lifelong warrior in the battle to free South Africa.
