There aren't many who are more or less unanimously called “heroes” by the entire world. Mandela fit the bill. There will be a ton of remembrances over the next few days, but you can do worse than to watch first major speeches after being released from his prison sentence. And this statement, given 27 years prior when he was on trial for sabotage, is an amazing, courageous document also worthy of a read.
