Play • 30 min

Only on the "CBS This Morning" podcast, CBS News foreign correspondent Debora Patta discusses growing up in apartheid-era South Africa and her career covering the African continent. Patta tells CBS News' Reena Ninan about getting jailed as a teenager and held in solidarity confinement for teaching black South Africans how to read — and she explains why that experience inspired her to become a journalist. During her career with CBS, Patta has covered the death of Nelson Mandela, the Ebola crisis and the use of child labor in the dangerous mining of cobalt.
