He was an anti-apartheid activist and led the African National Congress. He was convicted for crimes for which he had to spend 27 long years in imprisonment. He made a valuable contribution to the abolition of apartheid. He was the President of South Africa, the first Black to be elected to this post. He is the proud winner of more than a hundred awards including the Nobel Prize for Peace.
Harriet Tubman: Born in Dorchester County, Maryland, Harriet was a slave by birth. Her childhood years were filled with torture and misery. She was beaten by her masters and ruthlessly made to work. But she was one of those with exceptional qualities to rise against all odds of life. She escaped from captivity and led several missions of freeing hundreds of slaves. During the American Civil War, Tubman worked for the Union Army and became the first woman leading an armed expedition in the war. During the later years of her life, she actively participated in the women's suffrage movement. Her death in 1913 meant the loss of an iconic figure of American history.
