40 years ago, on the 12th of September 1977, Steve 'Bantu' Biko was murdered by the Apartheid regime in South Africa. A principled freedom fighter who lived to uplift his people and guide them through the dark days of oppression, Biko's teachings inspired generations of South Africans in their campaigns for democracy and self-determination. Many songs, books, a film and poetry are dedicated to Biko and his ideas. Let’s remember him today.
