About this title


Presents the lives and careers of the imprisoned leader of the African National Congress and his wife, an activist in the struggle for black majority rights in South Africa.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up This informational book blends geographical, social, and personal histories as they are appropriate to the lives of Nelson and Winnie Mandela. The background of the racial conflict in South Africa is chronicled with explanations of the struggle against apartheid from several perspectives, albeit with a pro-black leaning. Photographs show conditions of grinding poverty and destitution as they exist in the townships and squatters' camps. Conditions in prisons are explained in order to provide readers with an understanding of the severity of imprisonment, which countless prisoners fail to survive. Events from the lives and the dedicated anti-apartheid activities of Nelson and Winnie Mandela are smoothly woven into other historical and contemporary facets of the racial struggle, so this highly readable book appropriately orients young readers to the modern warriors and their cause. Laure's South Africa : Coming of Age Under Apartheid (Farrar, 1980) provides a rosier perspective because life for white and colored South Africans is juxtaposed for balance. Despite its harsh truths, the Hooblers' book on the Mandelas should be made required reading. Helen E. Williams, University of Maryland, College Park
