Nelson Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

Abdridged by Chris Van Wyk ISBN: 9780316545853

Abridged by poet Chris van Wyk and illustrated by South African artist Paddy Bouma, with an introduction from Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Long Walk to Freedom introduces children to the life of one of the world’s most inspiring leaders. Nelson Mandela’s Long Walk to Freedom tells the story of a true hero of our times and a believer in social action; his famous biography has been specially adapted for children in a picture book format.

This resource works really well in collaboration with Amnesty’s ‘We Are All Born Free‘ and our Freedom Park Powerpoint which discusses human rights and cultivates discussions on what a free and equal society looks like.
