The Complexity and Contradictions of Class Consciousness in Nelson Mandela

program date: 
Mon, 12/09/2013
In the Old Mole method, offering a critical though comradely commentary on the political work of Nelson Mandela, Alan Weider digs beneath the distracting and disarming veneer surrounding the late Nelson Mandela in mainstream media today. Inverting Barack Obama's neoliberal rhetoric, he argues that Mandela was not a hero because he was an individual, but because he worked with others. He also reminds us that while it's popular and not incorrect to remember Nelson Mandela as a man of peace and reconciliation, he was not above considering noncombative alternatives to nonviolence in the face of mounting state repression. 8:32 minutes (7.82 MB)
