“Mandela was a great man who did many great things for the world, such as achieving racial equality. He did not treat people differently because of the color of their skin, and I admired him for that,” Lee said. “A [united, democratic] South Africa would not have been possible without Mandela, whose determination to end social and global inequalities deeply impressed me.”
