Nelson Mandela was born on the 18th of July 1918 in South Africa.
The African Nation Congress parties mission was to abolish apartheid. In 1994 the first black president of South Africa was made, Nelson Mandela.
Apartheid was a system of racial segregation in South Africa enforced through legislation by the National Party (NP), the governing party from 1948 to 1994.
