Question

How did Mandela’s ‘hunger for freedom’ change his life?

Solution

ϖ Mandela realized in his youth that it was not just his freedom that was being curtailed, but the freedom of all blacks.

ϖ The hunger for his own freedom became the hunger for the freedom of his people.

ϖ This desire of a non-racial society transformed him into a virtuous and self-sacrificing man.

ϖ Thus, he joined the African National Congress and this changed him from a frightened young man into a bold man.
