My most prized possession is a video I took while visiting Nelson Mandela’s prison cell at Robben Island, where he was held for 27 years. The trip to South Africa was a result of my work in the anti-apartheid movement and I was invited to attend the “46664 Benefit Concert” in Cape Town, where I participated in a private event at the prison and later listened to Mandela speak in the courtyard.
