I don’t think that there is anything more humbling and equally inspiring than a man who spends 27 years in prison and comes out forgiving the people who put him there. Long Walk to Freedom is thus definitely a book for a close-minded/racist/ignorant person- if you can read it cover to cover and not be moved by this man’s incredible courage, strength and integrity then you have to be dead inside. Long Walk to Freedom recounts the life of Nelson Mandela- starting as the foster son of Thembu chief to the man who was instrumental in the ending of apartheid. Including details of his life including from the ending of his first marriage and his time as an impoverished student to the way in which messages were passed whilst at Robben Island, this book is both an interesting read and a moving one. Without a doubt the person I would most like to take to dinner and also a book I would highly recommend for a racist human being.
