Nelson Mandela by Kadir Nelson

Nelson Mandela by Kadir Nelson

MANDELA BY KADIR NELSON (HarperCollins, 2013)

This picture book biography highlights the life of Mandela from his childhood through to his election as President of South Africa including the 27-1/2 years he spent imprisoned for his political beliefs. It focuses on Mandela’s sense of the injustice of Apartheid and his compulsion to speak out against it. This picture book is a great introduction to a famous and important statesman for young readers. It goes without saying that Kadir Nelson’s art work is striking.
