Nelson Mandela, who led South Africa out of apartheid and became the nation's first black president, passed away at the age of 95 on the 5th of Decemeber, 2013. He had been fighting illness for a long time, and has finally been laid to rest. As a tribute to one of the most inspirational men in history, we are honoured to share some old photos that document his incredible life. Madiba, this is for you!
The end of apartheid is one of the most significant events in African history, at least in the past decade. And there is one site that symbolizes the return to freedom as no other: Robben Island.
