Nelson Mandela is 90

Nelson Mandela, the legendary hero of South Africa’s freedom movement, is 90 today.

A new documentary, "Becoming Nelson Mandela", being aired on NPR's All Things Considered, at 4:30 PM (East Coast time) today, looks back at Mandela's 1963 treason trial where he outlined his dream of democracy in South Africa and declared, "It's an ideal for which I am prepared to die." It was the moment when Mandela became known to the world as a symbol of resistance and democracy.

After the broadcast, the audio will be available at this website:
