The students tell what they know of Mandela's life and struggle. Two students compare Mandela to American civil rights leaders Martin Luther King and to Malcolm X. Some students talk about whether violence should be used to further one's goals. The students agree on the importance of fighting for equality. They are united in their admiration for Mandela.
