Book Review

"Long Walk to Freedom" by Nelson Mandela
Reviewed by Sarah

I recently finished Nelson Mandela's autobiography and want to recommend it to all of you! Nelson Mandela has an incredible life story as he fought the oppression and injustices of apartheid. Twenty-seven years of his life were spent in jail as a prisoner just for his political affiliation with the African National Congress party in South Africa. Even while a prisoner, Mandela always stood up for his own dignity and led his people out of a dark history. In 1994 Nelson Mandela was elected as president of South Africa in the country's first democratic election. This simple, humble, but profound book is a beautiful depiction of Mandela's life journey towards greatness. I thoroughly recommend it!

Overall Grade: A
