From those lepers and lunatics that were first locked up in the 17th century to their most infamous inmates Mandela, Sisulu, Mbeki, Kathrada, Mlangeni - the freedom fighters against Apartheid South Africa. 'Voices of Robben Island' reveals the great courage of some of its prisoners through the personal accounts of individuals such as Nelson Mandela and Mbeki.
