R.I.P Nelson Mandela

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died, aged 95, after suffering bouts of ill health all year.  He led the country out from apartheid in the 1990s, after 27 years in prison for his political activities, and was also a Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

BBC News reports that a full state funeral will be held.  See short video here.

Should you wish to learn more of this amazing man, a legend in his own lifetime, we hold several books …  including the biography “Nelson Mandela: no easy walk to freedom ; a biography” by Barry Denenberg.
