In another scene, a conversation between Mandela and Jason (black security) who is not happy to assign White as Special security, Mandela persuades him to change the views on Whites who has done injustices to them and to forget the past through reconciliation and forgiveness. He tells them how forgiveness liberates the souls and the need for them to act differently from what the whites were expecting from them.

    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.
