Google with Johannesburg, South Africa, based Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory (NMCM) documented online the life and times of one of the world's greatest statesmen and spreading his story to promote social justice throughout the world.

"The new online multimedia Mandela archive includes Mandela's correspondence with family, comrades and friends, diaries written during his 27 years of imprisonment, and notes he made while leading the negotiations that ended apartheid in South Africa," informs Google.

The archive will also include the earliest-known photo of Mr. Mandela and never-before seen drafts of Mr. Mandela's manuscripts for the sequel to his autobiography Long Walk to Freedom.

"By clicking into the exhibit, My Moment with a Legend, you can go beyond Madiba's personal materials to get a diverse perspective through photos, videos and stories, via the memories of people like Archbishop Desmond Tutu, F.W. De Klerk and Nomfundo Walaza, a community worker," added Google.
