In 1948, justice and equality were outlawed in the country of South Africa. The people needed one voice to speak up when the world fell silent. They needed one leader to stand up when the world looked away. One man answered that call, one man who sacrificed his own future for the future of his people and transformed a nation. The story cuts back to Mandelas childhood where we see him going through school and then university and finally, to when he gets his first job as an articled clerk. The narrative focuses on him as being a positive leader and the face of change in South Africa, omitting later criticisms, like his lack of action in trying to stop the sweep of AIDS in South Africa when he was president.

Both were content living as local businessmen, printing newspapers and building bicycles.

In the late 1800's, the world's leading scientists were trying to construct a machine that could soar above the Earth. One by the one these brilliant scientists failed, some even falling to their deaths, victims of their own winged contraptions. So, how could Orville and Wilbur even think succeeding when no one else could? But succeed they did. This is the story of their life, the risks they tool, despite the multiple failures, and their unwillingness to accept defeat.

Muhammad Ali. His ferocious skill inside the ring made him a champion, his gentle spirit outside made him a hero, and his courage in life made him a legend. Like David taking on Goliath, he fought against the biggest and the strongest and managed to come out on top. Like a modern day Robin Hood, he gave his wealth to the poor. He had the good looks of a movie star and the words of a poet, and left his fans and critics absolutely spellbound every time. He soon became the champion of the world, but gave it all up by standing for what he believed in. Refusing to abandon his Muslim faith, and refusing to fight in the Vietnam War, cost him the best years of his career, and nearly stripped him of his freedom. But Muhammad Ali survived it all, and fought his way back to the top all over again.
