Nelson Mandela: First ever TV interview with anti-apartheid leader discovered

This is believed to be South Africas late anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandelas first ever television appearance. The footage is believed to have dated from 1956. The Nelson Mandela Foundation, an NGO dedicated to Mandelas memory, said in a statement that the 24-second interview was probably taken in 1956 during the Treason Trial, which ended in 1961 with the acquittal of Mandela and dozens of others on charges of treason. Mandela, who died in 2013 aged 95, became South Africas first black president in 1994. He won the Noble Peace Prize in 1993 for his efforts to promote racial reconciliation in his racially-scarred nation. Sep 2, 2016
