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.
