This is a must read for all readers. To provoke our thinking and understanding of prejudices that we have towards people who are different in physic and behavior from what we perceive to be the norm.
It details the hardships Mandela endured and sacrifices he made to end the apartheid in South Africa. I was amazed at the oppression that actually existed for black Africans during this time. And the unbelievable sacrifices Mandela made in order to better the future for his people.
Until you read a first hand account of these national tragedies you can only imagine how hard things were during those times. And it's often harder than you imagined.
The book begins at the time he was born and his early life gives you a glimpse into tribal customs and beliefs. Just this information alone makes it an excellent read. The personal and public sacrifices Mandela made in the name of freedom from racial oppression, and the toll it took on him, are amazing. A definite must read for anyone that enjoys good autobiographies!
