Nelson Mandela opened the first black law firm in South Africa. When he was caught by the police he was working undercover as a chauffeur. He became friends with his warders while in prison. He received the Nobel Peace Prize jointly with the South African President who let him out of prison. One Findery member sang for Mandela when he traveled to Sydney. His children’s umbilical cords are buried beneath a tree in front of his old house. These are some of the tidbits that make up the fascinating patchwork quilt of Nelson Mandela’s life.
