Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg, Gauteng, on 13 May 2008.

In Celebration of Nelson Mandela’s 100th Birthday and #MandelaDay

Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid leader who was jailed for his activism and in 1994 became South Africa’s first black President, regularly recited one poem during his more than twenty-five years of imprisonment—the 1875 poem “Invictus” by English poet William Ernest Henley. The poem, which helped Mandela persist through extraordinarily challenging circumstances, includes the iconic lines, “I am the master of my fate: / I am the captain of my soul.”
