My name is Elias. I am a poor black worker in South Africa. T he time when I first met Nelson Mandela was a very difficult p eriod of my life. I was twelve years old. It was in 1952 and Ma ndela was the black lawyer to whom I went for advice. He offe red guidance to poor black people on their legal problems. He was generous with his time, for which I was grateful. I needed his help because I had very little education. I bega n school at six. The school where I studied for only two years was three kilometers away. I had to leave because my family c ould not continue to pay the school fees and the bus fare. I co uld not read or write well. After trying hard, I got a job in a gold mine. However, this was a time when one had got to have a p assbook to live in Johannesburg. Sadly I did not have it becau se I was not born there, and I worried about whether I would b ecome out of work
