Nelson Mandela Day

Did you know… 

… that today is Freedom for Nelson Mandela Day? On this day in 1990, Nelson Mandela, leader of the movement to end South African apartheid, was freed after 27 years in captivity. Mandela led the African National Congress (ANC) in its negotiations with the minority government for an end to apartheid and the establishment of a multiracial government. In 1994, he was elected South Africa’s president. He remained a global advocate for peace and social justice until his death in December 2013.

“Instead of a sign that says: ‘Do not disturb’ I need one that says: ‘Already disturbed, proceed with caution.'”
