Justice Goldstone Tells of South Africa's Journey
from Apartheid to Democracy
1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

Justice Richard J. Goldstone
Richard Goldstone, former Justice on the Constitutional Court of South Africa, gives a stirring  Lecture describing his country's break from apartheid and the establishment of a system based on equal justice.
Nelson Mandela first came before a South African court as a dissident leader facing the death penalty. Several years later he returned to speak at the opening session of the Constitutional Court of South Africa as president of the country.

Justice Richard J. Goldstone recalled Mandela's triumphant and unlikely rise to power during his stirring Roberts Lecture last November. In his epic account, Goldstone also recounted South Africa's abolition of apartheid and its transformation into one of the most progressive countries on earth after three-and-a-half centuries of ruthless discrimination.
