This segment is dedicated to Nelson Mandela who passed away on December 5th at the age of 95.  Below is one of my favorite live performance clips of Gil Scott-Heron, performing “Johannesburg” live at The Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute concert.

 The concert – also referred to as Artists United Against Apartheid, Freedomfest, Free Nelson Mandela Concert and Mandela Day – was held on June 11, 1988 at Wembley Stadium in London, England.  With an estimated 72,000 people in attendance the event was broadcast to 67 countries to a viewing audience of 600 million.
