Young Mandela

The Revolutionary Years

By David James Smith & Buck 50 Productions
Narrated by Allyson Johnson / 14 hours 26 minutes

Nelson Mandela is well known throughout the world as a heroic leader who symbolizes freedom and moral authority. He is fixed in the public mind as the world's elder statesman-the gray-haired man with a kindly smile who spent twenty-seven years in prison before becoming the first black president of South Africa. But Nelson Mandela was not always elderly or benign. In Young Mandela, David James Smith takes us deep into the heart of racist South Africa to paint a portrait of the Mandela that many have forgotten: the committed revolutionary who left his family behind to live on the run, adopting false names, and organizing the first strikes to overthrow the apartheid state. Young Mandela lifts the curtain on an icon's first steps to greatness.
