Nelson Mandela and the Apartheid

For 27 years, Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for believing and fighting for a free and equal society. When he was released in 1990, he led the charge for a multi-racial democracy. He became South Africa's first black president and a world leader in peace and social change. He was able to put an end to the apartheid. His death in Johannesburg last Dec. 5, 2013 meant a great loss for the world.

Apartheid was the name given to South Africa's brutal policy of segregation that lasted from 1948 to 1994. Under Apartheid, mixed marriages were prohibited, and every individual was classified by race. There were separate beaches, separate buses, separate toilets, separate schools and even separate park benches.
