For those of you too young to know much about Nelson Mandela and apartheid, the BBC has put together a 90 second history: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-22911431. There is much more online. You should also read at least one obituary, and the BBC one is here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-10773745. The campaign against apartheid is also worth reading about this weekend. How many similarities can you find with other campaigns with which you are familiar?
