Nobel-Winning Apartheid Foe Dies

South African author Nadine Gordimer, one of the strongest anti-apartheid literary activists, died Sunday at age 90. Gordimer won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1991 for her writings that captured life under white rule in the country. She was active in the African National Congress, and three of her books were banned by the apartheid regime. When Nelson Mandela was released from prison, Gordimer was one of the first people he asked to see.
