PHOTOS: Nelson Mandela through the years

FILE- In this March 28 1960 file photo, members of the African National Congress  take part in a day of mourning at Orlando East, near Johannesburg, South Africa. Against all odds, the party of Nelson Mandela which  has transformed a nation where just 20 years ago black South Africans could not vote, and beaches and restaurants were reserved for whites only, is celebrating its 100th anniversary in Bloemfontein Sunday Jan 8 2012. Building in background has words "away with Verwoerd" painted on it. Verwoerd was South Africa's Prime Minister and strong proponent of the racial policies which led to the mass shooting at Sharpesville. (AP Photo/file) <span class=meta>(AP Photo/ JD JW**LON**)</span>
