On postcard verso: Nelson Mandela (1918- ) -- With phenomenal courage, strength of will, wisdom, and moral force, Mr. Mandela withstood a quarter-century of unwarranted imprisonment (June 12, 1964 to February 11, 1990) in his South Africa homeland, and after release, continued to lead the African National Congress in its assault on apartheid and toward political independence. As world statesman in 1991, he appealed to the U.S. Congress in Washington, the Bush Administration, and the American people for support in the struggle for his people's independence.
