Man has always believed that the maker has helped the world become this paradise our God had intended for us. A Xhosa born to this Thembu royal family, Mandela frequented Fort Hare University plus the University of Witwatersrand, where he examined the law. Living in Johannesburg, he grew involved in anti-colonial politics, entering the ANC and maturing a founding member of its Youth League. After the Afrikaner opposition government of the National Party established apartheid – a policy of racial segregation that privileged whites – in 1948, he rose to renown in the ANC’s 1952 anti-apartheid Defiance Campaign, was appointed a superintendent of the organization’s Transvaal chapter and led the 1955 Congress of the People. Working as a lawyer, he was frequently arrested for seditious activities and, with the ANC leadership, was unsuccessfully indicted in the Treason Trial from 1956 to 1961. Guided by Marxism, he secretly joined the South African Communist Party (SACP). While initially committed to non-violent demonstration, in association by the SACP he co-founded the militant Umkhonto we Sizwe in 1961, beginning a sabotage campaign against the government. In 1962, he stood arrested, convicted of conspiracy to topple the state, and condemned to life in imprisonment in the Rivonia Trial.

Everywhere, he acted as peacemaker in the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing trial, oversaw aggressive intervention in Lesotho, and served as Secretary General of the Non-Aligned Action from 1998–99. Declining a second administrative term, he was succeeded by his deputy, Thabo Mbeki. Mandela converted to elder statesman, concentrating on charitable work in fighting poverty and HIV/AIDS in the Nelson Mandela Foundation. Mandela was a controversial person for much of his life. Denounced as a communist terrorist by critics, he faced particular opposition from followers of apartheid. Conversely, he earned international recognition for his activism, having gained more than 250 honors, comprising the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize, the US Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the Soviet Lenin Peace Prize.
