Nelson Mandela: The Man Called Madiba

NM1Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born July 18, 1918. In November 2009, the United Nations General Assembly declared his birthday “Mandela Day.”

It is a day to remember and celebrate Mandela’s contributions to freedom.

NM4Mandela’s inauguration as president of South Africa in 1994 was historic for many reasons. He was the first democratically elected president of South Africa. He also was his country’s first Black president and, at 75, its oldest president to hold office.

Finally, his inauguration united the largest number of heads of state since U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s funeral in 1963.
