This blog has been designed to provide information about the activities held at the social studies bilingual sections in CPI Tino Grandío (Guntín,Spain). The English language and Social Studies teachers have elaborated most of the resources you can see but our "auxiliares de conversa" also have their own page and posts. Therefore everyone is invited to have a look .

Who was Nelson Mandela?

picture from Wikipedia
Nelson Mandela has been one of the most relevant leaders of the 20th century and probably the most significant African one.

He was one of the most important statesmen of the 20th century because of his struggle to replace the apartheid (=racist) regime of South Africa with a multi-racial democracy.

Timeline from BBC News
He was also called Madiba, his clan's name.

He was in prison for over 20 years  because of his struggle against apartheid and soon afterwards he was elected the first black presidents of South Africa, a country with a majority of black population.
