Madiba's Day

Today is International Mandela's Day. 
This year will mark the first time the day has been celebrated without Madiba, and the fifth year since the UN declared July 18 – the birthday of the anti-apartheid revolutionary – the international day aimed at "bringing people together to fight poverty and promote peace and reconciliation."
But, why is Nelson Mandela so important?
Because  he went to prison for 27 years and he stood up  just for what he believed in. He believed that black people should have as many rights as white people. Along that time he had been offered to get out of prison but only if he gave up fighting for what he believed in but he refused!
