Steve Bantu Biko Day!
On this day in 1977, Steve Bantu Biko died in police custody. If you’ve ever watched the movie Cry Freedom or read about his life then you would have an idea of the circumstances.
His death angers me and I think that’s why I stay away from getting too deep into what happened in the past because it is upsetting and only when you really look at such things do you understand how forgiving black people have been.
So on this day, marking 35 years since his murder, what does Steve Biko’s death mean to you? What lessons do you take away from his life and what he taught?
May his soul rest in peace
