Video: Nechama Brodie Takes a Walk Through the City of Gold and Discusses Its History

Inside JoburgNechama Brodie, editor of Inside Joburg: 101 Things to See and Do, took CNN on a walk through Johannesburg and its history, starting on Main Street, which was one of the first streets to be plotted out in the grid of Johannesburg.

“The strange thing about Johannesburg is that for all that it is a city based entirely on making money, it has at the same time produced two of perhaps the most important human rights political leaders that we’ve known in the last few centuries, which is Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Ghandi. Neither of whom were born here, but both of whom were formed here in a sense,” Brodie says.
