Write a short passage about Nelson Mandela.
Nelson Mandela was born near Transkei, on July18, 1918. He completed law degree at university when he was 22 years old. He is a great black leader who devoted all his life to fighting for the equal rights for the black people. It was 1952 when he opened a law office to help poor black people on their problems. A few years later , Mandela encouraged people to use violence against anti-black laws to get the same rights as white people.
So he was put into prison. The reason for which he won the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize was he that never gave up fighting for the freedom of all the blacks. What he did was for his people, his country, not for himself. So he is a warm-hearted, brave, determined and unselfish man. As far as I am concerned , he is a great man.
