In the wake of Nelson Mandela’s death, David Gordon – a native of South Africa and associate professor of history at Bowdoin – talks with fellow history professor Patrick Rael about Mandela’s historical and symbolic legacy for South Africans.

Gordon, whose research focuses on southern and central African history over the last two centuries, was recently interviewed about his new book Invisible Agents for the podcast “Africa Past & Present”.
