"Mandela: An Audio History" -- this week, NPR is running an incredible 5-part series on the history of the South African anti-apartheid movement and Nelson Mandela's role in it, as it's the 10 year anniversary of post-apartheid democracy there. The audio pieces are rich with clips from newsreels, speeches, and interviews with Mandela and his associates --- yesterday's featured his chilling "I am prepared to die" speech from the dock during the trial which led to his long imprisonment. It is all worth a listen.
