Today throughout the program, we're remembering the life of South Africa's first black president, Nelson Mandela. Our next guest lives in LA now, where he works as an accountant. But Selwyn Gerber grew up under apartheid in the Cape Town suburb of Sea Point. 

He joins the show to talk about his experiences growing up during this tumultuous time.
