Mandela (1918-2013)

 Nelson Mandela, being a serious amateur boxer (heavyweight), trained alongside professional boxers in Johannesburg. This was while he and Oliver Tambo were operating South Africa’s first black owned law firm. In his autobiography he speaks fondly of his time at the boxing gym at the Donaldson Orlando Community Centre (DOCC), which he joined in 1950.

Is it any wonder the man remains an iconic symbol of Fight & Resistance against Injustice.  This man touched not only lives but civilization.  For us who'll remember his fight for justice, participate and pass it on. Teach those too young to have seen a Mandela, be a Mandela.

Rest Well Brave Warrior!
