Richard Stengel pays tribute to Nelson Mandela.

JOURNALIST WHO COLLABORATED WITH MANDELA ON LONG WALK TO FREEDOM

There’s a lovely image in the Mandela documentary made by Angus Gibson and Joe Menell where they film him in Oslo when he went to receive the Nobel Peace Prize [in 1993]. He’s shown making the hotel bed. He would never leave a room without making the bed. It was part of the prison experience that would refine him as an orderly personality. You have to travel light when you’ve been in prison for 27 years.
