Two world renowned revolutionary icons, Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro, meet for the first time in Cuba 1991. This book is the collection of their speeches from that auspicious day. Speaking at a rally, Mandela credits Cuba's military support and involvement in Angola, and comments on Cuba's assistance to debilitate the US-backed South African army, which resulted in the acceleration in the fight to bring down the apartheid government. Castro acknowledges the contribution of South Africans to the worldwide fight for justice. Mandela and Castro regarded each other as mentors -- and the world regards them as icons. Historians, researchers and activists will be keenly interested in this book.
