Composite photo about Nelson Mandela: his jail cell, becoming president, his portrait
For 18 years in segregated South Africa, "Nelson Mandela was imprisoned in a damp concrete cell measuring 8 feet (2.4 m) by 7 feet (2.1 m), with a straw mat on which to sleep" (photo far left) and then made to do hard labor. He served a total of 27 years in prison. Upon his release at the age of 71, he became the first black president and forgave those who had imprisoned him (middle photo) and who had assumed prison life would kill him. He then embarked on a policy of national reconciliation with these words: "Courageous people do not fear forgiving, for the sake of peace."
