BLACK HISTORY FLASHBACK: 23 years ago today on February 11th, Nelson Mandela is set free after serving a 27-year sentence for his anti-apartheid activities. He went from Prisoner to President. Amen!
“As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.” ― Nelson Mandela
