A Free Mind
During his 26 years in jail Ahmed Kathrada refused to allow the apartheid regime to confine his mind
Out of stock
During his 26 years in jail Ahmed Kathrada refused to allow the apartheid regime to confine his mind. Despite draconian prison censorship practices and heavily restricted access to the written word, Kathrada discovered a wealth of inspiring writings which helped to strengthen him. A Free Mind presents extracts from poetry, novels, songs, sayings and letters which Kathrada transcribed and treasured as he served his life sentence, with Nelson Mandela, mainly in South Africa’s notorious Robben Island Maximum Security Prison. It includes quotes from Bertold Brecht, Mahatma Gandhi, Emily Bronte, Karl Marx, Olive Schreiner, Shabbir Banoobhai, Voltaire and many others.
