Anti-Apartheid Activist Ahmed Kathrada Dies At 87

South African freedom fighter Ahmed "Kathy" Kathrada spent decades in jail with Nelson Mandela. His best friend later in life was one of his prison guards.

Micah White, co-creator of the Occupy Wall Street movement, now lives in Nehalem, Ore., where he's active in local politics. "There are no big businesses here. These are all my neighbors. You can't block traffic," he says. Trav Williams hide caption
