Book of the Week – Nelson Mandela – The Struggle Is My Life

Nelson Mandela – The Struggle is my Life

Nelson Mandela was born in Transkei, South Africa, on July 18, 1918.  He joined the African National Congress in 1944 and was engaged in resistance against the ruling National Party’s apartheid policies after 1948.  He was incarcerated at Robben Island prison from 1964 to 1982 and then moved to Pollsmoor Prison, during which time his reputation as a potent symbol of resistance to apartheid grew steadily.  Released from prison in 1990, Mandela received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and was inaugurated as the first democratically elected president of South Africa in 1994.

This book, The Struggle is My Life, contains Nelson Mandela’s speeches and political writings from his days as a leader of the African National Congress Youth League in 1944 until his release from prison in 1990.
