A Tribute to Nelson Mandela

This 12-minute remembrance is a succinct overview of Nelson Mandela’s adult life as a leader of the ANC fighting South Africa’s Apartheid system of government. The clip includes rare footage of a news interview with Mandela when he was in hiding in 1960, and audio of his trial in 1964. Nelson Mandela became South Africa’s first black president in 1994.
