Mandela

Author(s): Book by Laiona Michelle, music and lyrics by Greg Dean Borowsky and Shaun Borowsky

Infused with the rhythms and spirit of South Africa, Mandela shines a light on the South African people’s courageous fight for their liberation. For 27 years, Mandela and his comrades sacrificed their freedom and their families paid the price. It is a story of determination, hope and how the world rallied to free him and his people.
