Read full description of the books:
I live in the city where he was murdered. Some people here don't like it when i voice the notion that we still bear a collective shame over this. They don't like most of the notions I voice, come to think of it. I read this book in Dublin in 1993, when I spent a year wandering aimlessly around Europe while my country burned. It's hard to believe he was in his twenties when he wrote most of these things. His thinking was way ahead of his time. I find it terribly sad how the ANC never mentions him (he wasn't an ANC man). What he said is way too important to be ignored like that.
There should be a statue of him here in this town to remind us. But no. Instead they want to change it's name to Mandela Bay, even though Mr Mandela barely ever set foot here.

Read information about the authorStephen Biko was a noted anti-apartheid activist in South Africa in the 1960s and 1970s. A student leader, he later founded the Black Consciousness Movement which would empower and mobilize much of the urban black population.
While living, his writings and activism attempted to empower black people, and he was famous for his slogan "black is beautiful", which he described as meaning: "man, you are okay as you are, begin to look upon yourself as a human being".
Since his death in police custody, he has been called a martyr of the anti-apartheid movement.
