A first-rate work on the great civil rights icon Martin Luther King, Jnr., and two of Africa’s most credible leaders in politics (Mandela) and literature (Achebe) by a thoroughly informed and credible writer (Chido Nwangwu of USAfrica) who has focused for the past 25 years on Africa in the international arena. George Kennedy, U.S Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, rtd


Nelson Mandela and Chinua Achebe, the colossi of the 20th/21st centuries African renaissance: two nearly-lookalikes, two nearly-dictions alike; one born in Mveso, Xhosa wetlands of the eastern Cape, south Africa on 18 July 1918, the other born in Ogidi, Igbo rainforest of west Africa on 16 November 1930; one, Father of the successful struggle for the restoration of African lost independence in South Africa, the other, Father of African Literature. Well done, Chido! Prof. Herbert Ekwe-Ekwe


An excellent, trans-generational book on the great Mandela and Achebe from Chido who pioneered, delivered and bridged the gap between our two great continents through multimedia. Terrific insights! Dr. Kase Lawal, former member of the U.S Presidential Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations; Chairman, CAMAC

For us, the younger generation Africans, Euro-Africans and African-Americans, I think this important and easy-to-digest book should be required reading across families, parliaments and schools. Nneka Ezenwa Chiazor, Aphropolitan Washington DC

Chido Nwangwu has yet scored another first by chronicling the life and time of two all-time greats: Mandela and Achebe. Was it not Harold Robbins who wrote in ‘Descent from Xanadu that “life is for the living and immortality for history.” This is history, in context! Louis Nwadialo, Black Gold, Lagos
