Nelson Mandela by Hakim Adi


Nelson Mandela by Hakim Adi

On 11 February 1990 a seventy-one year old South African man was released from jail after 10,000 nights as a prisoner. His name was Nelson Mandela and the eyes of the world were upon him as he made his first steps as a free man. This was the moment campaigners around the world had waited for. This grey man emerging into sunshine was a symbol that South Africa had finally become free of apartheid. This book tells the story of an extraordinary man who has struggled for race equality all his life - and won. It tells of a man who became the president of the people he helped to free and in doing so earned the love of people all around the world.
