Remembering Nelson Mandela

Mandela
It seems fitting to start with a re-cap of one person that helped so many, Nelson Mandela.

The anti-apartheid revolutionary and the country’s first black president was known for his compassion and progress through peaceful resistance. Mandela spent 27 years in prison for treason of the white minority government and was released in 1990 after negotiating with his captors. He went on to lead the first fully democratic election in the country’s history. His contributions and the number of people he inspired are innumerable.

After Zuma confirmed Mandela’s death, many of his most famous quotes appeared across the web, such as one of his most memorable: “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

In honour of a lifetime of accomplishments, take a look at Mandela’s life through these memorable moments.
