Robert Siegel speaks with Joel Stransky, who is in Washington, D.C., to receive an award from In Search for Common Ground. He's representing South Africa's 1995 Springboks rugby team, and the award is for inspiring unity and healing through the power of sports. Stransky kicked the winning goal of the 1995 Rugby World Cup. The moment was featured in the film Invictus. He talks about how the team was able to bridge the divide between blacks and whites in post-apartheid South Africa.
