“An ideal for which I am prepared to die…” a tribute to Nelson Mandela

•December 6, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Nelson Mandela

During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to dieNelson Mandela, 20 April 1964
