Dean Richards: Sir Ian McKellen’s Moment with Nelson Mandela
Remembering Nelson Mandela
Nelson Mandela guided South Africa from the shackles of apartheid to multi-racial democracy, as an icon of peace and reconciliation who came to embody the struggle for justice around the world. Imprisoned for nearly three decades for his fight against white minority rule, Mandela emerged determined to use his prestige and charisma to bring down apartheid while avoiding a civil war, eventually becoming South Africa’s first black president. Nelson Mandela died Thursday, December 5, 2013, at age 95.
