At first, we're going to speak of Nelson Mandela. Mandela always paid attention on the "invisible", the cooks, the cleaning ladies, the drivers, the waiters, those whom the common run of people ignores generally. Nelson Mandela knew how to listen to. He took mentally notes. He was profoundly molded by humanity. He aimed to be a man as the others. We can also quote Mandela for his fight in South Africa, during the Apartheid. February 11th, 1991, Nelson Mandela exceeded the railings of the prison to join the people for whom he fought and continues to fight. A few years later he became first black president of South Africa and received the Nobel Peace Prize. Today, Mandela is for everyone the voice of wisdom, the reason and the hope, insuflant in the whole world the will to believe in the future and the change. It is for them qualities that Mandela is considered as a hero, having managed to improve the living conditions of thousand black people in South Africa.

In a second step, we're going to speak about Rosa Parks who is an African American become the icon of American Civil Rights. Rosa Parks made long studies so obtains a high and rare level of studies for people of color at that time. She occupies several functions : needlewoman, nurse's aide and cleaning lay fo a couple of White liberals, who encourages her to do a training course on the rights of the workers and the racial equality. Then, she become member of American Civil Rights. On December 1st, 1955, Rosa Parks gets on a bus and refuses to obey the driver who asks her to get up to give his place to a White person. She is stopped and imprisoned. The next day, a boycott is thrown by Martin Luther King. Rosa Parks continues to fight all his life for the racial equality. Heer act of resistance of this day of December, 1955 stays a strong symbol of the fight against the segregation in the United States. Rosa Parks is considered as a hero because she allowed to take forward the situation of the African Americans.

To conclude, we can say that a hero can change a life like that was the case with Nelson Mandela and Rosa Parks which changed the life of million black people.
