Summary
Nelson Mandela spoke of the past haunting the present. This program explores the rebirth of South Africa, demonstrating that a national history racked with oppression can guide and instruct those working for a better future. Studying the moving and provocative art of the apartheid era, the program also visits Robben Island, where Mandela was imprisoned, and examines Cape Town's historic District Six, which serves as a reminder of long-lost vitality and racial integration. The most illuminating scene, however, concerns a Cape Province vineyard that is home to the nation's first black-owned wine label, aptly named New Beginnings.
