Published 15 years after Nelson Mandela's memoir Long Road to Freedom, this fully authorized graphic biography relays in color pictures the life story of the great moral and political figure, from his boyhood in a small South African village to his growing political activism with the ANC, from his 27-year incarceration on Robben Island to his dramatic release, and his years as president of South Africa.
"Inspirational, informative and filled with meaningful lessons on how to live in a complex world, [this comic book] is as much for adults as it is for children. It should be required reading for any student of modern history or passionate believer in civil rights and the resilience of the human spirit."—NPR
