Nelson Mandela

Overview

Sometimes, very occasionally, you learn about a person who did something you can't even comprehend. An achievement so big, an act of defiance so massive, you can't even remotely understand how a human being can do such a thing. Nelson Mandela is one of those people.

In his struggle against apartheid (the racial segregation of blacks and whites in South Africa), he spent 26 years in prison, from 1964 to 1990. That's almost 10,000 days. Can you imagine going to sleep in a place that has nothing but a mat on the floor and a bucket in the corner, and waking up every morning to grueling work (mostly crushing stones) for 10,000 days and nights in a row?

That's why there's so much to learn from the life of Nelson Mandela and that's exactly what we'll do.

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear"
