Recently a recording of late former President Nelson Mandela surfaced of him speaking with a journalist.

The interview was allegedly conducted in 1956 which, according to reports, is five years prior to what was thought to be his first ever television interview in 1961. An interview conducted by British journalist Brian Widlake.

The footage was allegedly filmed during the Treason Trail break in 1956.

The brief black and white clip showcases Mandela saying “From the very beginning, the African National Congress set itself the task of fighting against white supremacy.”

“We have always regarded it as wrong for one racial group to dominate another racial group.”
