Nelson Mandela

A video on the life story of Nelson Mandela, taken from the website https://www.nelsonmandela.org/

 

I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die. ”

Speech from the Dock quote by Nelson Mandela on 20 April 1964
