Nelson Mandela

DN! In DepthDecember 10, 2013
Mandelacell1994

Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid leader who became South Africa’s first black president, has died at the age of 95. This page highlights news and excerpts from past Democracy Now! interviews about the life and legacy of Mandela, who was imprisoned for 27 years, from 1962 to 1990. He was one of the most famous political prisoners in the world and his freedom became a central demand of the international anti-apartheid movement. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993, and in 1994, four years after his release, he became South Africa’s first black president.
