After serving 27-years in three different prisons, Nelson Mandela was freed when then South African president, F.W. De Klerk began to dissolve apartheid. De Klerk removed the ban on the African National Congress (ANC), suspended executions, and ordered the release of Nelson Mandela.
The Nobel Peace Prize recipient went on to become the first elected President… post apartheid South Africa. Mandela died on December 5, 2013 in Johannesburg, South Africa. He was 95-years-old.
