In this selection from the Independent Lens film Winnie, Nelson Mandela returns from a long prison sentence but fails to credit his activist-wife Winnie Mandela for her role in keeping the fight against apartheid going while he was imprisoned. Winnie herself comments that she had lost her identity when he returned, that she was once again “Mandela’s wife.” We also see their trip to NYC threatened when the US declares her an “International Terrorist.”
