"Remembering Hugh Masekela, master musician who fought for South African freedom" PBS NewsHour 1/23/2018


SUMMARY:  Over the course of his six-decade career, Hugh Masekela's jazz and anti-apartheid activism made him a beloved international figure.  In exile, he used his music as a form of activism to call for Nelson Mandela's release from prison and freedom in South Africa.  Masekela died Tuesday in Johannesburg at 78 years old.
