MANDELA: AN AUDIO HISTORY Commemorative Edition

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Joe Richman

History • 1.25 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2014

This remarkable audio history begins with Nelson Mandela's voice proclaiming on a crackly recording his five immortal words:"I am prepared to die." The words were uttered when he gave a four-hour speech testifying at his own trial in 1964. Throughout this compelling history, Desmond Tutu is accompanied by multiple voices and newsreels in support of Mandela's life story. Music such as Miriam Makeba's “Make Us One” and “Beware, Verwored” (one of South Africa’s prime ministers) is sprinkled throughout. Sound effects like doors closing at Robben Island or prisoners doing hard labor at the quarry personalize the story. President de Klerk's announcement of Mandela's freedom and Mandela's inauguration as president conclude this look at a unique history. S.G.B.
