Nelson was a young South African with a reputation for trouble-making. Who would have thought he would one day lead his people to freedom?

Nelson grew up at a time when black South Africans suffered terrible injustice. He was determined to change this – even if it meant grave personal danger.

27 years of his life were spent in prison, and everyone seemed to be against him – even his own family – but Nelson never stopped fighting for what he believed in: true equality for all, no matter what the colour of their skin.
