    Danny Schechter has made six documentaries about Nelson Mandela and has been a supporter of the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa since the 60s. Join him as he discusses Mandela’s extraordinary contributions to his people, his world wide iconic presence, and the suffering still taking place in South Africa today.

    A completely unique biography and thematic telling of the story of Nelson Mandela, Madiba A to Z draws on Danny Schechter’s forty-year relationship with Madiba. Danny collaborated closely with the makers of the major motion picture Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, starring Idris Elba and Naomie Harris which released everywhere on Christmas Day. Each chapter of this unique portrait corresponds to a letter of the alphabet, and the letters cover major and minor, unexpected and fascinating themes in Mandela’s life and his impact on others, including Athlete, Bully, Comrade, Forgiveness, Indigenous, Jailed, Militant, and President.
