In South Africa in the 1950s and 1960s, the magazine Drum chronicled the most important cultural happenings in the black townships laboring under apartheid. This documentary uses dozens of archival photographs to trace the arc of this vital journalistic resource from its inception to its forced decline. In the magazine's coverage of politics, arts and sports, it shines a spotlight on the early careers of influential figures such as Oliver Tambo, Albert Lutuli, Miriam Makeba and Nelson Mandela.
