Mandela: An Audio History (CD)

By Produced by Joe Richman and Sue Johnson (Radio Diaries)

MY HERO recommends this book to young adult readers.
Originally broadcast on NPR's All Things Considered, the five-part radio series "Mandela: An Audio History" tells the story of the struggle against apartheid through rare sound recordings, the voice of Nelson Mandela himself, as well as those who fought with him, and against him.

The series weaves together an unprecedented collection of archival sound: a rare recording of the 1964 trial that resulted in Mandela's life sentence; a visit between Mandela and his family secretly taped by a prison guard; marching songs of guerilla soldiers; government propaganda films; and pirate radio broadcasts from the African National Conference (ANC).

Hosted by Desmond Tutu with an introduction by Nelson Mandela, the series was produced by Joe Richman and Sue Johnson of
