The film Amandla, which opened in New York this week, traces the battle against white rule in South Africa in a unique way; song by song. NPR's Michele Norris talks with South African jazz musician Hugh Masakela, who was exhiled from his homeland during apartheid, and about the role music played in his nation's struggle.
