    Nelson Mandela


    It is amazing that the first Black president of South Africa lived the life that he lived. He has been an ICON for South Africa, Africa and the rest of the world for a long time. He suffered after fighting for the freedoms of his people similar to Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King, slain still in his youth and the other living to be almost 100 years old and became the first Black President of South Africa. Both men leaving a mark that maybe none other could have and maybe no one else will do later.

    "For now, let us pause and give thanks for the fact that
    Nelson Mandela lived -- a man who took history in his hands,
    and bent the arc of the moral universe toward justice."
    President Barack Obama
    Let’s take a moment to reflect on the live and times of President Mandela.


     


    Let's discuss a question.  With President Mandela’s transition, are we nearing the end  of the old guard that helped usher in so many changes across the globe and who will step up to continue the dream and the legacy?

    Timeline: The life of Nelson Mandela

    in Politics Progressive

    (CNN) -- Nelson Mandela, the revered statesman who emerged from prison after 27 years to lead South Africa out of decades of apartheid, has died, South African President Jacob Zuma announced late Thursday.


    Mandela was 95.


    "He is now resting. He is now at peace," Zuma said. "Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father."


    "What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human," the president said in his late-night address. "We saw in him what we seek in ourselves."


    Mandela will have a state funeral. Zuma ordered all flags in the nation to be flown at half-staff from Friday through that funeral.


    Mandela, a former president, battled health issues in recent months, including a recurring lung infection that led to numerous hospitalizations.


    With advancing age and bouts of illness, Mandela retreated to a quiet life at his boyhood home in the nation's Eastern Cape Province, where he said he was most at peace. He was later moved to his home in the Johannesburg suburb of Houghton, where he died.

For 20 years, he directed a campaign of peaceful, non-violent defiance against the South African government and its racist policies. In 1993, Mandela and South African President F.W. de Klerk were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to dismantle the country's apartheid system.

    1990 Town Hall Meeting With Nelson Mandela (New York, USA)

    in Politics

    1990 Town Hall Meeting with Nelson Mandela of South Africa.


    This meeting, held in New York and chaired by Ted Koppel of ABC Networks, formed part Nelson Mandela's first visit to the USA immediately following his release after 27 years in prison.


    Much of the meeting focused on Nelson Mandela's advocating of sanctions against Apartheid South Africa, his support for the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO) as well as his close friendship with Yasser Arafat (of Palestine) and Fidel Castro (of Cuba).


    It is important to note that this meeting took place in 1990, long before the world embraced Nelson Mandela or the ANC, yet, even then, Mandela stood firm and resolute on his and the ANC's policies even though it could have "hurt" his and the ANC's "image", for example his support for the Palestinian and Cuban people.
