Product Description

Product Description

For 30 years, the African National Congress, led by Walter Sisulu, Oliver Tambo and Nelson Mandela, was the core of opposition to the white supremacist apartheid regime in South Africa. After organizing strikes and founding the armed military wing of the ANC, Mandela spent 27 years in jail before emerging as a worldwide symbol of human freedom. In 1994, Mandela became President of South Africa, in the first free election in that nation's history. This anthology is a collection of Mandela's speeches and writings, from his statement to the South African court that sentenced him to life in prison, to his acceptance of the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize, to his speeches as South Africa's first elected Black President. Preface gives brief biography.

An interesting read. It shows that a man though denied by physical constaints of aparthied and economic depravation, freed the power of his mind to express himself as freely and profoundly as he could.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Truth 19 Feb. 2014
By Kim D. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic book. Whenever someone is labeled "controversial" by the media, it is always best to read what the person has actually said. This book is a detailed description of Nelson Mandela's fight against apartheid in his own words.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know the truth of his triumphant struggle. We were able to witness the life of a historic icon and giant before he died. I was only ten when MLK died and therefore, I did not witness his life per se.
When Nelson Mandela was released from prison I was an adult and I had by then witnessed the many protests in South Africa and around the world against the racist police state that was in existence. I saw the newsreels of the massacre of school children, and other unarmed citizens. Many people have spearheaded revolutions within their own countries against oppression. Very few have emerged with the strength, character, dignity and forgiveness that was exhibited by Mr. Mandela. this man literally held the power of life and death in his hands. The indigenous South Africans would have done whatever Mr. Mandela told them to do when he was released from prison. How many people have actually had the power of a whole nation within the palm of their hand. The people followed him willingly.
He chose to use his power to urge the country toward forgiveness and unity. The rest is history.

The powerful words of a powerful man who lived a powerful life.
