Nelson Mandela ROCKS.

Good morning, everyone. For the past couple of weeks, the 4Fives have been learning all about Nelson Mandela. We each wrote about him and it was really interesting to learn about him.

In 1918 Nelson Mandela was born. Nelson Mandela was placed in jail two different times because he was a man with very strong beliefs. Nelson Mandela was sent to jail because he was being treason to the government.


He did not believe in the way white government was run, because he was black and all the white people had better lives.

Another law was that the black can’t sit next to the white people and they couldn’t use the same beaches as whites because whites had more rights than blacks.
All the white people had better doctors then black people. This is when Mandela came in and told the government that he was tired of these orders.

The government did not like the way he was talking about them. So they sent Nelson to prison. They sentenced him for life.

The black people were not happy about that.

He spent his time in jail and the government decided to let him free after 27 years so they let him free.

Then they had a vote of who was going to become president of South Africa. Then a few days later Nelson Mandela was picked and he was the new president of South Africa and everybody was happy that he was president.

    Nelson Mandela really did have strong beliefs and they were strong. Its sad because white people have the rights and the black people don’t. People should not seperate the white and black people becausee it wasn’t fair. We all have human rights.
    Happy Easter!
