The Anti-Apartheid Movement Behind Mandela Can’t Be Forgotten

We speak to documentary filmmaker Danny Schechter and Father Michael Lapsley in Cape Town. Schechter has made six nonfiction films on Mandela, including “Mandela in America.” He began working in South Africa in the 1960s. He is author of the new book, “Madiba A to Z: The Many Faces of Nelson Mandela,” which was published in conjunction with the new film, “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.” We also speak with Father Michael Lapsley, who lost his two hands in a mail bomb assassination attempt in April 1990, two months after Nelson Mandela was released. He is now the director of the Institute for Healing of Memories.
