Rolihlahla Mandela was born into the Madiba clan in the village of Mvezo, on 18 July 1918. His mother was Nonqaphi Nosekeni and his father was Nkosi Mphakanyiswa Gadla Mandela who was principal counselor to the Acting King of the Thembu people.

He completed his Junior Certificate at Clarkebury Boarding Institute and went on to Healdtown. Mandela began his studies for a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University College of Fort Hare but did not complete the degree there as he was expelled for joining in a student protest.
Meanwhile, Mandela began studying for an LLB at the University of the Witwatersrand. By his own admission he was a poor student and left the university in 1952 without graduating, he had only started studying again through the University of London after his imprisonment in 1962 but didn’t complete that degree either.
Going back to 1952 Nelson Mandela was chosen as the National Volunteer-in-Chief of the Defiance Campaign with Maulvi Cachalia as his deputy. It was a joint program between the African National Congress and the South African Indian Congress. Mandela and 19 others were charged under the Suppression of Communism Act, an act to declare the Communist Party of South Africa to be an unlawful organization. Following that for their part in the campaign and sentenced to nine months of hard labour, suspended for two years.
The National Party was the governing political party of the time. After their white-only government established segregation that privileged whites. Both the ANC, and the Republic of South Africa committed themselves to overthrowing the National Party. Nelson Mandela was appointed President of the ANC's Transvaal branch, rising to prominence for his involvement in the 1952 Defiance Campaign,a campaign presented by the African National Congress at a conference held in Bloemfontein and the 1955 Congress of the People, a gathering organised by the National Action Council, a multi-racial organization.
In 1961, Mandela was convicted for inciting people to strike and leaving the country without a passport and was sentenced to five years' imprisonment. However, Mandela was shortly thereafter sentenced to life imprisonment for sabotage in what was known as the "Rivonia Trial, by Justice Dr. Quartus De Wet, instead of a possible death sentence.
