Biko Week a reminder of how BCM was diluted by co-option
Commemorations do not adequately represent Black Consciousness
September 6-12 is regarded as Biko Week. It is the period to remember one of the greatest sons of the earth... the founder of the Black Consciousness Movement in Azania. The week recalls the period in 1977 when Steve Biko was arrested, tortured and ultimately brutally murdered by apartheid forces.
