The incredible new 'Mandela Story' video re-imagines the first black South African President's journey to ending apartheid with the use of social media. If he had access to these resources, there's no telling how much faster his campaign could have gone or how much international support could have been garnered.

The incredible journey and accomplishments by Nelson Mandela have been not only celebrated by the country of South Africa that he once presided over, but globally as well. The international icon of peace and hope is celebrated every year on July 18th for International Nelson Mandela Day. Looking at the Mandela Story in the light of the 21st century only makes his accomplishments that much more impressive, as he lacked the communication methods taken for granted today in many parts of the world.
