There have been many biopics about Nelson Mandela, but most can agree that Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom portrays the South African leader like you've never seen him before. The acclaimed film is the topic of our BET.com-hosted round-table discussion, dissecting everything from Idris Elba's depiction of Mandela to the lessons in the film for America's current racial climate.

BET.com's Clay Cane leads the discussion, which includes our very own J'Nara Corbin, ConcreteLoop.com's Angel Laws and GlobalGrind.com's Blog Zilla. The cinephiles and pop culture experts share their thoughts on Mandela's little-known history as a ladies man and a revolutionary.  

Plus, what lessons does Mandela's story hold for American society in a year when Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and Trayon Christian have made headlines?

Watch our exclusive discussion below, and see Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom in theaters November 29.
