Nelson Mandela was a civil rights leader in South Africa who fought against apartheid. He was also the first president of his country. Rolihlahla Mandela was born in 18 July 1918 in Mvezo in South Africa - one of his teachers gave him the name Nelson. He studied law at university and then he started working as a lawyer for poor black Africans. In 1948 the south african government introduced apartheid. Mandela joined the african national congress (ANC) because he believed that black south africans should have the same civil rights as white people. He admired gandhi and he believed in non violent protest against racial segregation. In 1960 at a peaceful protest in sharpeville, the police killed 69 people. The government blamed the ANC and banned it, but this didn't stop Mandela. He continued to speak against the government. They arrested him in 1956 and again in 1962 after he triedto overthrow the government. This time they sent him to prison in Robben Island to do 18 years of hard labour. Nelson Mandela became the most famous prisoner in the world and morer and more people supported the "free nelson mandela" movement: there was a widespread boycott of south africans products and entertainers and sports teams refused to go there - people hoped this would persuade the government to abolish apartheid. Finally in 1988, things began to change when the government allowed black students to go to "white" universities. In 1990, President De Klerk freed Mandela from prison. The two men agreed South Africans had to work together in peace and they won the nobel peace prize in 1993. 1994 was an important year for South Africa: black Africans voted in an election for the first time, the ANC won the election, nelson mandela became president and apartheid was abolished. When Nelson Mandela became president, people round the world welcomed him as a great statesman.
