21 Icons - A Journey to Democracy
The fight for freedom
A Journey to Democracy shares the story of South Africa’s turbulent past, the apartheid years, and reflects the spirit of a nation.
In the film 21 iconic South Africans discuss the divisive nature of the early days, the pain and loss of living in exile, the hardships brought on by being in the underground struggle, and their passion and determination to fight for a free and just South Africa.
We will succeed
The narrative, broadcast on SABC3 to a primetime Freedom Day audience, unpacks the struggles that still prevail, the work that needs to be done and the reasons why the country will succeed in honouring the legacy of Nelson Mandela.
