Google Launches Nelson Mandella Digital Archives

As one of the most influential civil rights and arguably human rights advocates in recent history, Nelson Mandela stands high. Following its own $1.25 million grant to the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory in Johannesburg, Google has unveiled a digital archive of Mandela’s life, speeches, and correspondence. Of much interest to me personally are the digitized versions of letters that Mandela wrote during his prison years.

There truly is a treasure trove of information in the archives and kudos to Google for making it available to so many people unable to physically attend the Centre themselves.
