Description
Mandela the schoolboy . . . Mandela the father . . . Mandela the rebel. . . Mandela the leader. Few figures have inspired as much respect or loyalty as Nelson Mandela. Fromhis boyhood days in the South African countryside to his time as leader of the AfricanNational Congress to his twenty-seven years in prison, Mandela firmly resisted injusticeswherever he saw them. Raised in a racist nation, Mandela would come to rail against thesystem of apartheidoand would eventually help abolish it, becoming the firstblack president in South African history. His is a story of courage and persistence, a story of hope and belief. It is the story ofhow the son of a tribal chief rose to become one of the most prominent political figures ofour time. Mandela's extraordinary life is brought poignantly alive for the first time in a picturebook by the celebrated artist, Floyd Cooper, author/illustrator of the widely acclaimed Coming Home: From the Life of LangstonHughes.
