Rodriguez: The 2012 60 Minutes Interview

From 60 Minutes.

Sixto Diaz Rodriguez has died at age 81. A poor Detroit singer-songwriter, he inspired a generation of anti-apartheid protestors in South Africa, and was featured in the documentary film "Searching for Sugar Man."

"60 Minutes" is the most successful television broadcast in history. Offering hard-hitting investigative reports, interviews, feature segments and profiles of people in the news, the broadcast began in 1968 and is still a hit, over 50 seasons later, regularly making Nielsen’s Top 10.
