Nelson Mandela fought for freedom and racial equality his entire life: for his beliefs and actions, he was jailed by the South African government for twenty-seven years. Yet, in 1991, he emerged from prison to become the first black President of the new South Africa. This volume charts his inspiring story.
"An annotated table of contents, discussion questions, a chronology, and a reading list add to each book's value, but it is the diversity of the source materials that will make books in the series particularly useful."
