From Prison to President Radio Diaries

    • Documentary

Four years after Nelson Mandela was released from prison, he became president of South Africa. And yet, those 4 years were among the bloodiest and most painful for all South Africans – black and white – as they struggled toward the transition to majority rule. On the Radio Diaries Podcast we've been revisiting chapters from our documentary series, Mandela: An Audio History. In this episode, we bring you "From Prison to President." Plus, a bonus chapter about what might have been the most awkward lunch in history.
