Exploration 11

Nelson Mandela's father was chef of Tembu Tribe in South Africa, so he was born with the traits of a leader.  In 1942, Mandela studied Law at University College of Fort Hare and the University of Witwatersrand . In 1944 he joined the African National Congress and was engaged in resistance against the ruling National Party's apartheid policies after 1948. He was put on trial from 1956-1961 was ruled not guilty in 1961.  In 1963, Mandela was arrested for plotting to overthrow the government with violence, he was release from prison in 1990.


The 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet

The Dalai Lama is a spiritual leader and are considered enlightened beings, they give up their lives to be rebirth'd so they can serve humanity. A conflict I found is that the Dalai Lama, in 1992 issued guidelines for the constitution of the future free Tibet from China.


  1. i find it crazy how mandela was put in prison for something like that and for such a long time. he was a great leader. good job.
