Nelson-Mandela

As the world mourns the death of one of the world’s most luminary leaders, find out more about the remarkable story that is Nelson Mandela. Moving the entire world with his struggle against apartheid in South Africa, the politician/humanitarian became a beacon of light not just for the many oppressed but also a torch bearer for justice.

An hour-long special tribute titled Mandela: His Life and Legacy will give viewers a chance to retrace his journey of struggle beginning from his childhood days in the royal Thembu family to his work as President for the fight against the racial injustice that had grown strong in the country.  Imprisoned for 30 years, Mandela attained freedom and success for his cause of social inequality among the wealthiest country of Africa, and went on to become the first black South African President.

The episode will be presented by seasoned journalist Mark Austin which will include statements by political officials, close friends, and allies such as South African president FW de Klerk and former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown. 

The documentary will air on National Geographic Channel at 11 pm tonight, with a repeat telecast on Sunday at 9 am and 1 pm.
