First published in South Africa during the 1950s, Drum magazine became a rallying point for black people as the anti-apartheid movement took shape. The publication, which featured liberal articles by such intellectuals as Lewis Nkosi, Can Themba, and Henry Nxumalo, gave voice to the movement, helping Nelson Mandela and his compatriots. Drum was more than a magazine - it was an expression of a new way of life. Among the highlights of this documentary is footage of the young Mandela and Oliver Tambo as they conduct political meetings and confrontations. The apartheid regime eventually closed the magazine down, but its legacy lives on to this day.
