“A giant of history”.

That’s how US President Obama summed up Nelson Mandela. A battler against racism and segregation in his country, he became a global inspiration to those who believe in a better world

Key events

This poster summarises the key events in his life and the struggle against apartheid. This A1-size wall display centres these events around an arresting image of him in later years to draw the eye and interest.

It forms a tribute for those already inspired, and an education for those learning about Mandela's life for the first time.

From Mandela’s birth in the Eastern Cape through the Campaign for the Defiance of Unjust Laws, Robben Island and “Free Nelson Mandela” to his release and presidency, the pivotal moments are shown in the sweep of history.

Promoting social justice

Even after his death, Nelson Mandela’s work and ideals live on. He established three charities to promote his legacy of social justice.

The Nelson Mandela Legacy Trust links three together. The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund nurtures and protects vulnerable children, The Mandela Rhodes Foundation offers educational opportunity, and The Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory gives information on his life. Ten percent of this poster’s yields* will be contributed to these charities via the Trust – but you can also donate immediately online via Just Giving.

Online Nelson Mandela timeline

In addition, our online Nelson Mandela timeline complements the printed poster, illustrating entries with a blend of imagery and video.
