Mandela fought against apartheid and white minority rule in South Africa for decades, spent twenty-seven years in prison for his work, and was eventually elected President in 1994. In 1993 he and F.W. de Klerk received the Nobel Peace Prize “for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa”.
