Long Walks

Yesterday was international Nelson Mandela Day, otherwise known as Nelson Mandela’s 95th birthday. I know the days that he is on this earth are growing short, but I also know that each day he is still here we are privileged with his presence. I felt inspired to read Long Walk to Freedom, particularly after watching the two trailers for the new Nelson Mandela biopic due out this fall.  I was skeptical of the casting of Ghanaian Idris Elba to play Nelson Mandela, but I think I am a believer now after watching these trailers.

I think I like the teaser trailer even more just because I think it shows how hard Idris worked to get Madiba’s voice correct.

Idris Elba apparently can do so much more than star in my favorite disturbing British crime drama.
