Steve Biko legacy

"The most powerful weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed..." Steve Bantu Biko.
Seeing that it is 30 years after the cruel murder of Steve Biko, it seems appropriate to visit his legacy. Last week, I attended a conference here in Tshwane (Pretoria) on the theological relevance. A few things that strike me again.
Biko was a young,
a college, university drop-out (kick-out)
an ordinary member of his church, the Anglican church.
proudly black, without being racist to white people.
against racism,
against capitalism
a hard worker.
committed to his community.
