How was the native African culture important to and/or protected by Nelson Mandela?

The South African activist and former president Nelson Mandela (1918-) helped bring an end to apartheid and has been a global advocate for human rights. A member of the African National Congress party beginning in the 1940s, he was a leader of both peaceful protests and armed resistance against the white minority’s oppressive regime in a racially divided South Africa. His actions landed him in prison for nearly three decades and made him the face of the antiapartheid movement both within his country and internationally. Released in 1990, he participated in the eradication of apartheid and in 1994 became the first black president of South Africa, forming a multiethnic government to oversee the country’s transition. Since retiring from politics in 1999, he has remained a devoted champion for peace and social justice in his own nation and around the world

Why was constantinople an important city?

  It is an important trade center due to its location. Ever since the days of human expansion from Southwest Asia to Europe, people needed a way to cross the Bosporus strait that separates Anatolia from the Balkan Peninsula. The Bosporus is also the only water passage between the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. Whoever controlled this location controlled (and profited from) both land and water transportation in the area. Silk Road trade brought east and west together at Constantinople, and the Crusades exposed otherwise European-minded soldiers to the world beyond their own continent, further increasing the city's importance. Renaissance innovations made ocean travel possible, allowing western European countries to navigate around Africa on their way to Asia, bypassing the "choke point" at Constantinople and reducing its importance as THE global center of trade. However, it still remains a cultural and economic crossroads between East and West. Because it gave the Ottomans access to other trade routes.
