Happy Birthday, Nelson Mandela!


The great South African leader celebrates his 95th birthday on Thursday, July 18. KHOI reporter Greta Anderson visits with two S. African expatriots living in Ames, Semakaleng Lebepe-Mazur and Sipho Ndelele, to garner first-person accounts of the history surrounding Mandela and the struggle against apartheid. Then, she mixes it up with audio clips of Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu from the Pacifica Radio Archives and some of the songs that provided the soundtrack of the movement.
