Speaker(s) : Nelson Mandela
Recorded on 6 December 2013
As Africa stands at a critical stage in its development, Nelson Mandela, the leading figure of the anti-apartheid movement, spoke at the London School of Economics and Political Science about his childhood in Africa and its position in the world.
He provides a personal account of Africa's history and details how this can be used progressively to tackle some of the major questions facing the country today. His account includes a special plea that political commentators do not judge Africa on the same basis as they judge the old and advanced industrial countries.
