Some sad news to report this morning–as Winnie Mandela has died.
She played a key role in the battle to end apartheid in South Africa—-as her husband—former President Nelson Mandela had spent years behind bars.
Winnie had worked for years to get him released—–while fighting segregation….
Their marriage eventually fell apart—because while Nelson wanted to work with those who had oppressed—–Winnie did not….
She died early this morning—at the age of 81.
