In this hook activity, students will view a clip from the film MANDELA: Long Walk to Freedom that dramatizes life under apartheid in South Africa during the 20th century.
• What risk did Nelson Mandela take in making this speech? (he could lose his life) Why do you think he still made it? (the cause was important to him and his fellow African people)
