David Harewood leads Laurence Fishburne and Orlando Jones in BET's "Madiba" 2017

Madiba

BET came out strong in February 2017 with high quality miniseries Madiba.  The history of Nelson Mandela and the South African fight against apartheid was played by a top notch cast and occasionally laced with archival footage.  It is always interesting to see the winding path that the course of justice actually takes.
