Remembering Nelson Mandela

December 05, 2013 | Author: E. Cleveland


I was doing some work with The Africa Channel back in 2011 when Nelson Mandela was suddenly hospitalized. Unfortunate as it was, they had to be prepared for the worst and asked me to craft a short obituary to air should he suddenly pass away. Luckily, he lived a good two years after this piece was originally produced.

As depressing as this assignment was, what amazed me while I was gathering footage and cutting this piece was how he was able to recall his 1964 speech, word for word, in an interview over 30 years later.

It is with both sadness for the loss of Nelson Mandela and with gratitude for all he has achieved that I share the resulting tribute.
