Mandela – Bring Him Back Home

The Movement to free Mandela and lift South Africa out of Apartheid, much like the Civil rights movement in the USA, had a great influence on Musician’s around the globe and inspired collaborations between Black and White. Not only was this music a show of solidarity, an echoing of the feelings of the repressed, but also a chance to show the beauty that is capable when Black and White come together.

Paul Simon worked with many South African artists to create his Album Graceland and performed Two concerts in HarareZimbabwe, in 1987, for a mixed crowd. Many of the audience were the exiled leadership group of the Anti-Apartheid movement.
