A hundred memories of the great man, as revolutionary, world leader, family figure, and more, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth.
The book offers insight into Nelson Mandela’s life by retelling humorous, heart-warming and momentous moments from his life, roughly chronologically, drawing from his own writing and the memories of contemporaries, historians and ordinary people. 100 Mandela Moments is divided into sections, according to the many roles Mandela played in his lifetime: Mandela the school boy, Mandela the student, Mandela the lawyer, Mandela the outlaw, Mandela the prisoner, Mandela the negotiator, Mandela the statesman, Mandela the elder.
Each story or “moment” encapsulates something about the man behind the legend, and the book can be read cover to cover or dipped into as inspiration strikes.
