Twelve Disciples of Nelson Mandela
Tue, Sep 19, 2006 87 mins
Thomas Allen Harris's impressive "Twelve Disciples of Nelson Mandela" tells the story of his stepfather, Benjamin Pule Leinaeng---and, through him, the story of the African National Congress. In 1960, Leinaeng and 11 other ANC members, all followers of Nelson Mandela, fled South Africa to set up resistance to the apartheid state. Commenting are others who fled, including Moses Medupe, Mochubela Seekoe, Percy Mokonopi and Isabella Winkie Direcko, a teacher of Leinaeng.
