Join us as we explore the life of Nelson Mandela. He was born the son of a Thembu tribal chief in 1918 and grew up to be South Africa's strongest voice against the government's policy of racial segregation known as apartheid. After spending nearly three decades as a political prisoner, he was released, and in 1994 was elected President of South Africa, thus ending minority rule in Africa's last white-run country. We will show his struggles, triumphs and adversities which ultimately drove him to greatness as an African leader, a man of the people and truly a man of vision.Grade Level: 6-12. 60 minutes.
