9780821420256: Steve Biko (Ohio Short Histories of Africa)

Steve Biko inspired a generation of black South Africans to claim their true identity and refuse to be a part of their own oppression. Through his example, he demonstrated fearlessness and self-esteem, and he led a black student movement countrywide that challenged and thwarted the culture of fear perpetuated by the apartheid regime. He paid the highest price with his life. The brutal circumstances of his death shocked the world and helped isolate his oppressors.

This short biography of Biko shows how fundamental he was to the reawakening and transformation of South Africa in the second half of the twentieth century—and just how relevant he remains. Biko’s understanding of black consciousness as a weapon of change could not be more relevant today to “restore people to their full humanity.”

As an important historical study, this book’s main sources were unique interviews done in 1989—before the end of apartheid—by the author with Biko’s acquaintances, many of whom have since died.

About the Author:

Lindy Wilson is an independent South African documentary filmmaker and writer. Her films include Crossroads, Last Supper in Hortsley Street, and Robben Island Our
University
.

From Booklist:

Ambitious and intelligent, Biko was pursuing a university education in South Africa when he energized a student movement in resistance to apartheid. The impetus came from his own run-ins with brutal South African police and the spirit of resistance across the continent. Biko was a teenager when Nelson Mandela created the military wing of the African National Congress and was later arrested and imprisoned. Biko devoted himself to developing a philosophy of black consciousness, partly inspired by the U.S. civil rights and black nationalist movements, urging black South Africans to reject oppression and take pride in their own heritage and traditions. He developed a socialist perspective more tied to the African than European experience, focused on oppression based on race rather than class. Biko directed his organizing efforts to black South African youth, inspiring the Soweto uprisings. He was killed by prison interrogators in 1977; he was 30 years old. South African documentary filmmaker Wilson analyzes Biko’s legacy in the aftermath of apartheid and expresses continued concerns about racial conflicts and growing concerns about class divisions. --Vanessa Bush
