1994: Nelson Mandela becomes president of South Africa

On May 10, 1994, revolutionary leader Nelson Mandela became South Africa's first black president at age 77 after a lifetime working to end racism and abolish apartheid. That year, the Nobel Peace Prize-winner published an autobiography he had secretly penned in prison. Mandela is pictured at his inauguration in Pretoria in this photo by Walter Dhladhla.
