Overview

The life of Nelson Mandela, who served as South Africa's president from 1994 until 1999, is profiled in this PBS Frontline program.

The struggles of his life and his attempts to establish racial equality in South Africa are illuminated by interviews with some of his most trusted friends, as well as his former jailers. In 1990, after being imprisoned for 27 years on Robben Island, Mandela was released. Excepts from some of Mandela's letters are read, as well as selections from his autobiography.
