'Mandela: An Audio History,' Part 3: Dissidents and Children

The third installment of Joe Richman and Sue Johnson's series "Mandela: An Audio History" covers the years that Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress leadership spent imprisoned on Robben Island. Leadership in the anti-apartheid fight came from an unlikely place: Schoolchildren whose activism was fueled by a new rule that all education should be in Afrikaans.
