Lives That Changed The World: Nelson Mandela
Imprisoned 27 years for standing up for what he believed, Nelson Mandela preserved and was miraculously able to galvanize the world around his struggle to end apartheid...even from behind bars at South Africa's brutal and remote Robben Island Prison.
Released in 1990, Mandela entered a world profoundly shaped by his dream, his homeland now one of the multi-racial democracy. Against a backdrop of historical footage, this Nobel Peace Prize winner's own story is told through the eyes of 10 people who were there, who were inspired by his vision, who are a legacy of his epic quest.
Includes interviews with former Prime Minister F.W. de Klerk; Mandela's daughter Zindzi, who continues her father's legacy through her work with children; Christo Brand, former racist and prison guard who watched over Mandela; Zackie Achmat, HIV/AIDS victim and activist; Adriann Vlok, former minister of law and order during apartheid rule; and more.
