Athenian Dialogue: Mandela's Way VIRTUAL

Monday, September 27, 2021

Hosted by: Maine Municipal Association Mandela's Way: Lessons on Life, Love and Courage by Richard Stengel Facilitator: Dawn Michanowicz, MMC Nelson Mandela, who died in 2013 at the age of ninety-five, liber­ated a country from a system of violent prejudice and helped unite oppressor and oppressed in a way that had never been done before. In Mandela’s Way, Stengel recounts the moments in which “the grandfather of South Africa” was tested and shares the wisdom he learned: why courage is more than the absence of fear, why we should keep our rivals close, why the answer is not always either/or but often “both,” how important it is for each of us to find something away from the world that gives satisfaction like our own garden. This uplifting book captures the spirit of this extraordinary man—warrior, martyr, husband, statesman, and moral leader—and spurs us to look within ourselves, reconsider the things we take for granted, and contemplate the legacy we will leave behind.
