Mandela BirthdayNelson Mandela’s 91st birthday was feted at Radio City Music Hall with a performance by Carla Bruni, the first since she became first lady of France, as well as Lil’Kim and Cyndi Lauper. In “Senator Obama Goes to Africa,” the current U.S. President makes a humbling visit to the former South African President’s cell on Robben Island where he spent many of his 27 years in prison.  Nick Broomfield gets up close and personal with the face of the white supremacist movement in South Africa in “His Big White Self.” May Mandela Day, the new holiday in his honor, raise awareness for all humanitarian efforts, such as those of fellow Nobel Peace laureate James Orbinski, movingly documented in the film “Triage.” Watch on iTunes: Senator Obama Goes to Africa // His Big White Self // Triage: Dr. James Orbinski’s Humanitarian Dilemma
