Nelson Mandela in Jail

Here is a picture of the leader of the ANC, Nelson Mandela in Jail.

On 5 August 1962, Mandela was captured by the South African Police near Howick and put in jail. He was charged with inciting workers' strikes and leaving the country without permission. His hearing began on 15 October, but nothing was ordinary in this trial. Nelson Mandela was wearing a traditional kaross during the trial while refusing to call any witnesses, and turning his plea of mitigation into a political speech.
