Nelson Mandela helped contribute to the ending of Apartheid (the seperation of races) by taking part in protests and boycotts. His first boycott he ever took part in was Students’ Representative Council boycott. Also he took part in the ANC’s 1952 Defiance Campaign and the 1955 Congress of the People.He became the President of the ANCYL and made plans to keep the group together, even if the group was banned and created speeches off of that. Before Nelson Mandela was arrested, he lead the ANC, the African National Congress, to create strikes and speeches. Eventually, the protests rose to violent levels and Nelson Mandela got arrested.

Lasting Impact

Nelson Mandela helped end discrimination, give full citizenship to black people, and stopping apartheid in South Africa. He became the first black president in South Africa because of these actions.
