Mandela: Icon of Icons
In June 2012, Peter spoke at ‘HowTheLightGetsIn,’ an annual festival held in Hay by The Institute of Art and Ideas, where he gave the talk below, called ‘Mandela: Icon of Icons.’
During the talk, Peter discusses the qualities which make Nelson Mandela one of the world’s most potent symbols of the resilience of the human spirit. Drawing on his own experiences as a committed anti-apartheid campaigner Peter considers the exceptional qualities that make Mandela an icon and presents the point of view that Mandela was uniquely placed to lead South Africa to freedom.
