Throw back Tuesday, the New Year’s Eve Nelson Mandela Edition

30th December 2013 // By warholst

It’s 1988 and Nelson Mandela was still in jail, where he had been a guest of apartheid for the last 21 years.

But the tide was turning, the west was paying attention the pressure was mounting, then came this song, by the Specials and a whole bunch of kids that had never even heard of him where singing “free Nelson Mandela” and as 2013 draws to a close we pause to remember his passing, and sing again.
