International Nelson Mandela Day

Who is Nelson Mandela? Nelson Mandela is a politician and the first black President of South Africa. He was the First Head of State to be elected in a democratic election. After being elected President, Mandela fought for social equality of black people. There was no other strong person to fight against white people for equality at that time. Mandela thought that a person can transform the world into a better place’. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Then people got-together and established the ‘Nelson Mandela Foundation’ with UNESCO and named it on his birthday, July 18. Now, this day is called as the ‘Nelson Mandela Day’. We will celebrate this day with social equality for everyone.
