Nelson Mandela Documentry
Nelson Mandela was a man who stopped racism for all the people around the world. The main points about Nelson is how he changed the world for everyone to make it a better place. He even had to spend 27 years in prison just because people believed in him that he could change everything. The white people knew that whatever Nelson planned to do they knew that a lot of people would believe in him so that's why they put him in prison.
Nelson's father died when he was a child and during his years without his father he became a ward of Jongintaba at the great place in Mqhekezweni. He was the first in his family to attend a school and it was while there that the young Rolihlahla was given the name Nelson.
Nelson Mandela was a civil rights leader in South Africa. He fought against apartheid, a system where non-white citizens were segregated from whites and did not have equal rights. He served a good portion of his life in prison for his protests, but became a symbol for his people. Later he would become president of South Africa.
Nelson Mandela died on Thursday at the age of 95. The former President of South Africa left an indelible mark on both his country and the world, becoming an international symbol of the fight against injustice and human rights abuses. He will be remembered in our hearts forever and ever because he was a man that not only cared about his family but also the whole entire world.
