Madiba – Season 1, Episode 1

Published on 2 februari 2017 by Ebonee View

“Madiba” provides a handsome centerpiece to BET’s Black History Month lineup, solidly chronicling Nelson Mandela’s struggles against Apartheid over three nights, with Laurence Fishburne playing the South African leader.

In many ways an old-fashioned miniseries, “Madiba” (a term of reverence used in reference to Mandela) spans decades, dutifully beginning with Mandela’s youth and his father’s dying wish that he be educated. The story progresses through his rise to lead the African National Congress, imprisonment and eventual release, triumphing against the system that oppressed him.
