This post was originally published in 2012 but we love the Social Justice Project and wanted to revisit some of these great stories.
This is how the story of Nelson Mandela begins (by Dae’Juan, elementary).
I am a nice man for many reasons. Social Justice is most important to me.
First, a fact about me is I wanted equal rights for South Africa. Also, I am still living today. Next, I have two names, one of them stands for “great lover”. The other stands for “troublemaker”. Finally, I am great. I am great because I won the Nobel peace prize. Also I was president of South Africa.
Therefore, I am the great leader Nelson Mandela.
To be continued…
Nelson Mandela (WES4) is part of a series of Social Justice Leader rocks created by students of Whittier ece-8 in Colorado. We invite you to visit all WES rocks and submit your comments and feedback.
If you have found this rock or would like to continue this story, let us know!
