David Hyde speaks with Philip Goldman, former student activist and leader of Students Against Apartheid at the University of Washington, about the legacy of the late Nelson Mandela and the impacts of the divestment movement in the 1980s.

The Students Against Apartheid were instrumental in convincing the University to divest assets of companies that did business with South Africa.
