Little People, Big Dreams: Nelson Mandelaquarto
In the inspiring Little People, Big Dreams series, discover the lives of outstanding people from designers and artists to scientists and adventurers. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream.
Discover the incredible life of Nelson Mandela, the first Black president of South Africa, in this book from the bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, and his fight for equality.
Little Nelson's given name was Rolihlahla, which means 'troublemaker' in Xhosa, his native language. But his rebellious nature would lead him to become one of the world's most inspirational civil rights leaders and anti-apartheid revolutionaries. Despite the many years of imprisonment and adversity he faced, Nelson remained firm in his mission to end the racist system of apartheid in South Africa.
His bravery and resilience was rewarded when he was released from prison and later voted in to become South Africa's first Black president. This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the activist turned president’s life.
