Mandela in America

South Africa’s legendary leader Nelson “Madiba” Mandela was laid to rest this week after an armed struggle against apartheid that earned him 27 years of imprisonment, leadership of the African National Congress, a political victory for the nation’s majority black population, and his election as South africa’s first non-white president.

In this “Five O’Clock Shadow” tribute to Mandela, we recall his triumphal visit to the United States shortly after his release from the Robben Island prison. We hear Mandela’s historic address to the United Nations, and his tumultuous speech to a capacity crowd at the Oakland Coliseum in June, 1990, four years before his election as president of South Africa.
