about this book

Best Graphic Novel of 2011, Comicon India

In 1948, justice and equality were outlawed in the country of South Africa. The people needed one voice to speak up when the world fell silent. They needed one leader to stand up when the world looked away. One man answered that call; one man who sacrificed his own future for the future of his people and transformed a nation.

The story cuts back to Mandela’s childhood where we see him going through school and then university and finally, to when he gets his first job as an articled clerk.

“I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature.”– Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)
