About the Book

Madiba A to Z celebrates at the same time as it wrestles with the great historical questions that Mandela himself raised: What is forgiveness? What are justice and equality? How long must the long walk to freedom go on before we are free? Danny Schechter wrote Madiba A to Z after conversations with key players ranging from Thabo Mbeki to Nadine Gordimer, from Mandela’s Robben Island cellmates to his guards, from former presidents and cabinet ministers to his closest friends and family members, from adversaries to key advisors. What emerges is a portrait of a man and a nation that are, despite many gains, still fighting for true freedom. People told Mandela after his release, “Well, now you’re free.” And he said, “No, we’re free to be free.”
