    Anti-Apartheid Activist Winnie Madikizela-Mandela Dies at 81

    Together with her former husband, Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s first Black president, Madikizela-Mandela became a symbol of the struggle for a new country free from the racism of white minority rule. She died Monday after a long illness. Madikizela-Mandela rose to international fame campaigning for her husband’s release from prison, as well as for the advancement of Black South Africans — though her reputation was later marred by allegations of corruption and brutality against political opponents. The couple divorced in 1996, just six years after Mandela’s release.
