Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela: A life of Profound Humility

As I was thinking of what direction to take my writing of Mandela (because honestly, its really overwhelming to try and summarize the life of such an icon), then, I stumbled on this video of Oprah Winfrey interview Mandela in year 2000. Even if you are so unfamiliar with the historical events surrounding his life which culminated in his being locked in prison for 28years for his fight against apartheid, please watch this 4minutes 46seconds video below. This video shows Mandela's depth of humility, as he consistently focuses the attention on the people who strengthened him all through his time in prison and his drive for equality that has now transcended the globe.
