New exhibition celebrates struggle hero Biko

Zahira Kharsany

Holding the reigns of the ox-wagon that is pulling his father's coffin, Nkosinathi Biko sits alone and solemnly among the masses of people. Surrounded by a throng of supporters, angry and tearful, he cuts a figure of solitude. A hero of the struggle is dead -- but now lives on through the work of the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg.

Steve Biko: Icon 30 years after his death

Charlotte Plantive

Thirty years after dying in prison in apartheid South Africa, Steve Biko remains a historical icon, even if his black consciousness movement no longer carries political weight. A fervent anti-apartheid and freedom activist, Biko's popularity in the new South Africa is rooted in culture, providing ideas for the shaping of the identity of young black South Africans.
