1) Mandela became a symbol of freedom for the blacks in South Africa, by resisting the oppression for a lifetime. In his early years he was an activist leader who bombed, organized, and led a group of educated rebels, with whom he’d eventually be jailed, against the corruption of the white and very segregated South African Government. He was arrested for sabotage, imprisoned for life, but not before he had created a buzz of revolution amongst the black community. During his time in prison at Robben Island, a supermax prison off the coast of Cape town, he began to challenge the wardens and guards, and stand up for himself in a quiet controlled fashion, which was a movement that was quite successful for his fellow prisoners and himself. On the outside of the prison, a sort of “Mandela Myth,” had grown into a feeling of hope among the young rebels of the country. Many copycat activists emerged and were jailed along side Mandela. This was a good way for Mandela to exercise his talent and hone his skill as a peaceful leader.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
