Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Beautiful, informative, essential."

"Palmer employs vivid colors and vigorous brushwork that capture his subject's charisma admirably. . . . Rewarding reading for students of any country or culture afflicted with racial conflicts."

School Library Journal (starred review)
"Highly recommended for libraries that need titles about the ongoing global fight against racism. Mandela's journey makes for a powerful reminder of the ability to change."

The Horn Book Magazine
"By the time the book shows Mandela freed and elected president, the reader is full of admiration for this passionate and talented leader whose dedication earned him the nicknames of Madiba, 'honored elder'; and Tata, 'beloved Father of a new country.' Palmer's dramatic paintings use dynamic brushstrokes to create engaging portraits of the eminently recognizable Mandela and of the world he influenced."
