Apple honors Nelson Mandela’s legacy

This isn’t the first time Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has honored people on its website. However, the list of leaders the company has done this for is pretty short. Apple Insider reports that others who received this same honor included civil rights fighter Rosa Parks, as well as Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and Apple board member Jerry York.

Nelson Mandela leaves behind a legacy as a freedom fighter and South Africa’s first black president. He died Thursday while battling several major health issues. He spent nearly three decades in jail as he fought against apartheid and for equality in South Africa. Mandela wanted to see a peaceful end to apartheid, and he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize alongside former South African President F.W. de Klerk. He was elected South Africa’s first black president in 1994 and served until 1999. During his time in office, he made sweeping changes to the South African constitution and averted a civil war that had been building for many years.
