‘You empower yourself and then you reach out to others.’ Uplifting life lessons from one of the greatest leaders the world has ever known... through the eyes of the grandson whose life he changed forever. In his book Going to the Mountain, Ndaba Mandela shares the story of his coming-of-age alongside South Africa’s rebirth. It is a remarkable journey, and one that took him from the violent, segregated Soweto ghettos to his grandfather’s presidential home. As a young boy, Ndaba was constantly shunted from place to place. But at eleven years old he was unexpectedly invited to live with his grandfather, Nelson Mandela, even though he had met him only once before, during a prison visit. And, slowly, they built a relationship that would affect both of them profoundly. Ndaba's teenage years were complicated, but as he approached his twenty-first birthday, Mandela decided that Ndaba was finally ready to ‘go to the mountain’ – a test of courage during which you become a man. At the end of this gruelling ritual journey, the elders of the Mandelas’ tribe gathered and Ndaba’s grandfather was there, as ever, to share his greatest life lessons. From Nelson Mandela, Ndaba learned the spirit of endurance, the triumph of forgiveness, the power of resistance and the beauty of reconciliation. And as Mandela grew older, Ndaba had the chance to repay his grandfather’s love and support by demonstrating the ways in which he’d understood all that he had taught him. Intimate and inspirational, Going to the Mountain is a powerful reminder of how one person can impact profoundly on another, and a testament to the awesome power within us to change ourselves and our world.

Nelson Mandela was born into a royal family, attended elite schools, became a lawyer, and could have settled into a comfortable life as a member of South Africa’s black middle class. But his sense of dignity and injustice was fierce, and he dedicated himself to the struggle for freedom and democracy. He paid a heavy price for his choice, often putting his life in danger and spending 27 years in prison, away from his family, barely knowing his children. Guided by a deep pragmatism, he evolved into one of the greatest leaders in modern history, a man who inspired and uplifted the world. His story offers valuable lessons for leaders everywhere. Nelson Mandela is a fierce opponent of injustice, a proponent of nonviolent resistance, a moral beacon for the world, a man who changed the course of history and created today’s South Africa. He occupies a place in the Parthenon of great leaders--a symbol of the struggle for freedom and human rights, an inspiration to us all. But his has been a complicated life, filled with nuance and ambiguity. Mandela won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993, yet he once advocated the violent overthrow of South Africa’s apartheid government and was instrumental in creating a guerilla army dedicated to that end. A child of privilege born into a royal family, he benefitted mightily from his family’s connections but was suspended from college and ran away to the slums of Johannesburg to avoid an arranged marriage. New Word City, publishers of digital originals, contributes 10 percent of its profits to literacy causes.

Xhosa Folk & Fairy Tales contains 21 Xhosa folk and fairy tales for children plus a section on the Proverbs and Figurative Expressions of the Xhosa. Nelson Mandela, or Madiba, was a Xhosa and these are the stories he would have been told as a boy. Herein you will find stories like: The Story of Sikulume The Story pf Mbulukazi The Story of Long Snake The Story of Kenkebe The Story of The Wonderful Horns The Story of The Glutton The Story of The Great Chief Of The Animals; to name but a few. Like Native Americans and most other African folk and fairy stories, each story carries a moral as they were used to teach children the morals and lessons they would carry with them through life. Despite this, they are also extremely amusing and entertaining. But the tribes of South Eastern Africa were not as isolated as many would think. Long before the Europeans arrived on the coast of South East Africa, Indians and Arabians had been trading regularly along this coast, mostly for gold and slaves and often venturing far inland to obtain either or both. There was also frequent contact with, at least, the neighbouring tribes of the Bechuana, the Zulu, the Sotho, the Qwa Qwa and the Gariep. Indeed, many locally crafted items found their way North to the ancient city-state of Great Zimbabwe, some even making it as far afield as India and Arabia. In the days long before Radio, TV and the Internet, many a traditional story would have been shared around a blazing campfire and it is with this mix of Indian, Arabian and inter-tribal African cultures that stories, or fragments of stories, would have been swapped with the peoples they met. So, if one of these stories should ring with familiarity, you don’t have to look far to find the reason for it. ================ KEYWORDS/TAGS: Xhosa folklore, folk tales, Fairy Tales, African myths, African legends, fables, childrens stories, childrens books, storyteller, Bird That Made Milk, Five Heads, Tangalimlibo, Girl, Disregard for Custom Of Ntonjane, Simbukumbukwana, Sikulume, Hlakanyana, Demane And Demazana, Runaway Children, Wonderful Feather, Ironside And His Sister, Cannibals, Wonderful Bird, Cannibal Mother, Children, Mbulu, monster, creature, Mbulukazi, Long Snake, Kenkebe, Wonderful Horns, Glutton, Great Chief, Animals, Hare, Lion, Little Jackal, Proverbs, Figurative Expressions, south east Africa, south Africa, Xosa, click language, nelson Mandela, Nguni, Swazi, Sotho, Bechuana, Qwa Qwa, India, Arabia, Gariep, Transkei, kei river,

Dorothy N. Gamble and Marie Weil differentiate among a range of intervention methods to provide a comprehensive and effective guide to working with communities. Presenting eight distinct models grounded in current practice and targeted toward specific goals, Gamble and Weil take an unusually inclusive step, combining their own extensive experience with numerous case and practice examples from talented practitioners in international and domestic settings. The authors open with a discussion of the theories for community work and the values of social justice and human rights, concerns that have guided the work of activists from Jane Addams and Martin Luther King Jr. to Cesar Chavez, Wangari Maathai, and Vandana Shiva. They survey the concepts, knowledge, and perspectives influencing community practice and evaluation strategies. Descriptions of eight practice models follow, incorporating real-life case examples from many parts of the world and demonstrating multiple applications for each model as well as the primary roles, competencies, and skills used by the practitioner. Complexities and variations encourage readers to determine, through comparative analysis, which model at which time best fits the goals of a community group or organization, given the context, culture, social, economic, and environmental issues and opportunities for change. An accompanying workbook stressing empowerment strategies and skills development is also available from Columbia University Press.
