1964 - Rivonia Trial Sends Mandela to Jail

Following the raid of an ANC hideout, Nelson Mandela and 18 other ANC leaders were arrested and tried for attempting to overthrow the apartheid system. Mandela was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment. After spending nearly 30 years in prison as a result of the trial, Mandela was released on Feb. 11, 1990, after international calls for his release.
