  5. 5. [“ I was not born with the hunger to be free. I was born free- free to run in the fields, free to swim in the stream that ran through my village, free to r un m yles under the stars. As long as I obeyed my father and abided by the customs of my tribe, I was not troubled by the laws of man or God. It was only when I began to realize that my boyhood freedom was an illusion, when I discovered as a young man that my freedom had already been taken from me, that I began to hunger for it. … I slowly saw that it was not just my freedom that was curtailed, but the freedom of everyone who looked like I did. That is when I joined the African National Congress, and that is when the hunger for freedom became the greater hunger for the freedom of my people . “] Nelson Mandela, a n Illustrated Autobiography
