Coaster Nelson MandelaCoaster with design of Nelson Mandela. Made of birch wood and handcraftet in Sweden.
Nelson Mandela was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 for his work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa.
The refrain of “Free Nelson Mandela!” resounded among opponents of South Africa’s system of racial segregation while Africa’s foremost champion of freedom was imprisoned. Son of a village chief, the black lawyer Nelson Mandela was interned from 1962 until 1990 for leading the African National Congress (ANC) liberation movement in its armed struggle against apartheid. In prison Mandela became a unifying figure for the oppressed peoples of South Africa. Unwaveringly he pursued the goal of liberty for all until the white racist regime released him and agreed to negotiate. Nelson Mandela shared the Peace Prize with the man who had ordered his release, President Frederik Willem de Klerk. These former adversaries now agreed on a peaceful transition to a system of majority rule. From 1994 to 1999 Mandela was president of South Africa.
