From 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET, we pick up our coverage with A Tribute to Freedom’s Father on the network, with an hour-long special where you’ll hear from our reporters on the ground at the memorial service in South Africa as they reflect and recap on the speeches from at least six world leaders including U.S. President Barack Obama and President of Cuba Raul Castro.
