| 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5
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.
|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.
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.
