Dance Around Friday: With The Platters and Hugh Masekela Remembering Nelson Mandala

Twilight Time

 All week I had planed to post Twilight Time but I have added a tribute to Nelson Mandela as well.

I feel compelled to post something for Nelson Mandela today. Because Hugh Masekela used music to call attention to the agony, conflict, and exploitation South Africa faced during 1950s and 1960s, I find his song “Bring Back Nelson Mandela” speaks to the longings of the people at that time. We can’t bring him back now, but we can remember this great man and keep his legacy of freedom and justice alive.

What I remember the Anti Apartheid movement here in Berkeley is the sounds of helicopters 3 miles away and  hearing stories, from my friend who was in school at UC at the time, about running through clouds of tear gas.

Oh Yes We Mustn’t Forget To Dance!
