Nelson Mandela's height was 1.84 meters, or just over 6 feet. Nelson Mandela was a revolutionary leader through the segregation in South Africa and battled social injustice for the majority of his life.
Nelson Mandela was a well-educated young man who attended college in South Africa. After college, he co-founded the African National Congress Youth League, which played a large part in combating apartheid. Fighting this system through underground and military action eventually got him into legal trouble and led to decades of prison time. In 1990, Mandela was released and was elected to be the first president of a democratic South Africa. He died in 2013.
