As TheStreet continues its month-long Black History video series, we remember Nelson Mandela who is freed on This Day In History. He led the resistance against the oppressive white minority regime in a racially divided South Africa. He spent 27 years behind bars and was freed on February 11, 1990.
Mandela later served as South Africa's President from 1994 to 1999.
