Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela was born on
July the 18th 1918. He died on December the 6th in 2013 he died at the age of 95. He had three wife's and five children. Throughout his life he had been arrested about three times. He became the first black president of South Africa.

Mandela was one child out of 13 brothers and sisters. His birth name was Rohihlahla which means trouble maker, when he attended a Christian Primary his teacher changed his name to Nelson and it stuck ever since. He was born into the Madiba clan in Mvezo. He attended Fort Hare University college but got expelled for joining a student protest, when he returned home people were furious and punished him with an arranged marriage but he ran away. 

Throughout his years of living he had been in jail for a total of three times. Nelson Mandela was arrested for trying to sabotage and conspiracy to overthrow the government. He served twenty-seven years in prison. There were ninety-three counts of terrorism against him.Mandela came out of the jail when south africa got independence from the white minorities.

He was released from prison on the 11th of February 1990. Nelson Mandela become president by the African national congress his political party.  

Following his release from prison on 11 of February 1990 Nelson Mandela led his party in the negotiations that led to multi-racial democracy in 1994. As president from 1994 to 1999, he frequently gave priority to reconciliation, while introducing policies aimed at combating poverty and inequality in South Africa.

I am not sure he changed the world but he did change some cold greedy hearts. He fought for change from prison for 27 years in South Africa. I think Nelson Mandela barge paces to the world.
