From Morgan Freeman Invictus, 2009, David Harewood, Mrs. Mandela,, 2010 , Sydney Poitier, Mandela and de Klerk, 1997 and the most recent, Idris Elba Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom, 2013.
Dr. Maya Angelou composes prose that is like a eulogic song of the man, that is every story, every parable, every legacy any humble warrior could want but never asked for. Watch her tell Nelson ‘Madiba’ Mandela’s life.
