Nelson Mandela: Champion of Freedom

“Education is the great engine of personal development. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given that separates one person from another." - Nelson Mandela

The South African activist and former president Nelson Mandela (1918-2013) helped bring an end to apartheid and was a global advocate for human rights throughout his life.  In the 1940s, he was a leader of both peaceful protests and armed resistance against the white minority’s oppressive regime in a racially divided South Africa.

His personal convictions landed him in prison for nearly three decades.  Released in 1990, he participated in the eradication of apartheid and in 1994 became the first black president of South Africa. Mr. Mandela remained a symbol of peace and social justice in his own nation and around the world until his death in 2013 at 95.

This autograph from 2003, at the age of 85 is beautifully presented in this framed piece as a great reminder that “Education is the great engine of personal development.”
