In Remembrance: The Names of Nelson Mandela (from UNICEF)

I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a free and democratic society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.

— Nelson Mandela at the Rivonia Trial, 1964.
