    One thought on “Biko”

    1. I heard a lot about Steve Biko growing up. I had never imagined him being so young when he was murdered (only 30 years old) because of all he had achieved and how inspirational he was, and still is.This is perhaps the first biography I have read which was written by a friend of the subject. Donald Wood is a very courageous white South African who became one of Biko's closest friend and was subsequently involved in South Africa's struggle against Apartheid. What I admired about Wood was the fact [...]

    2. کتاب درباره زندگی قهرمان ضد نژاد پرستی افریقا استیو بیکو است او در زمان آپارتاید برای تحقق رویای ازادی سیاهان تلاش ومبارزه کرد وجنبش آگاهی سیاهان را به راه انداخت . او به خاطر شعارش، سیاه زیباست مشهور است، که خودش اینگونه آن را معنی کرده است: مرد، همین جور که هستی خوبی، به عنوا [...]

    3. This was not an enjoyable book to read, nor did I expect it to be. Well, actually, there were enjoyable parts to it. I enjoyed meeting the character of Biko and some of the banter in the friendship between Biko and Donald Woods (the author). Even though I knew how it ended, he was such a warm person and so passionate about what he believed, that I enjoyed reading about who he was when he was alive.It was when I wasn't reading this book that was hard. It was hard to focus on other conversations o [...]

    4. Steve Biko died in police custody on September 12, 1977, six days after being arrested by South African police. An unauthorized (secret) autopsy revealed brain trauma caused by severe blows to the head was the cause of death.Biko was the leader of the Black Consciousness Movement, an organization that promoted liberation and political change through peaceful, non-violent means of resistance. Because Biko’s words challenged the ruling Afrikaner Nationalist Party’s apartheid government, he was [...]

    5. Do not watch "Cry Freedom" before reading this book if you are expecting it to be like the movie. Same subject matter, but Cry Freedom is about getting the book itself out of the country.Although a little bit boring in spots, it very much explains the struggles that those men of color in South Africa had to go through to have thier messages heard. The moral of the story: Do not let these deaths be in vain--all should take lessons from the struggles of the Blacks in South Africa and remember that [...]

    6. Woods provides a complex and detailed portrait of Steve Biko, a leader of the Black Consciousness movement in South Africa during the period of apartheid, and conveys the extent of the oppression instituted by the South African government on blacks and outspoken whites. Though Woods does not appear to shy away from his or Biko's negative attributes, it is very easy to identify and sympathize with both and find oneself outraged at the way Biko's life was cut short.

    7. Steven Biko, a black student activist in South Africa during the 1970s, was murdered while in custody of the South African police, who claimed it ws suicide. Apparently he beat himself so badly that he died from his injuries. Donald Woods, a white South African journalist, found a story he could not let go, even at the insistence of the S.A. government. He personally knew Biko and resolved to tell the true story of what happened. With his own family the victim of police intimidation and threats, [...]

    8. I watched the movie first then read the book. Horrific experiences. Really nasty stuff happened to this young man in his quest to free his people. The author also made loads of sacrifices.

    9. I read this book when I was in the 3rd grade. This one of the two books my mom gave to me the other one was Roots.

    10. Inhoud: Op 6 september 1977 werd de leider van de Zwarte Bewustwordingsbeweging Steve Biko door de Zuidafrikaanse veiligheidspolitie gevangengenomen.Hij werd 22 uur verhoord,gemarteld en geslagen en overleed zes dagen later aan een fatale hersenbeschadiging. Het boek vertelt het verhaal over Steve Biko en zijn strijd. 'Ik ben ervan overtuigd,' zegt Donald Woods tien jaar later,' dat niemand aan de top Steves dood wilde. Daarvoor was hij te bekend en te zeer martelaar voor het herstel van de zwar [...]

    11. Having read the 1987 version of this book I felt I was viewing a snapshot of a very particular time. At the time of the printing of this edition, South Africa was in a state of turmoil, and as Donald Woods correctly pointed out, the question was not if violence would increase, but when.This book is written in a rather propagandist time, but unusually I do say this as a means of levelling criticism. Instead, the desperation of Woods to convince the international community that it was of incredibl [...]

    12. from the back cover: "Bantu Stephen Biko, perhaps the most important Black leader to have emerged in South Africa, was tortured and killed by the Security Police in September, 1977. This book. written in defiance of a banning order by Biko's close friend, Donald Woods, the white newspaper editor who led the protests after his death, offers a remarkable personal and political portrait of the murdered leader. It includes a concise history of South Africa's racial policies and closes with a ringing [...]

    13. I'm almost finished reading this book, and when I'm not reading it, I'm thinking about the things I've read. I recommend this book to everyone, and I think it is a must read for every Black person. Steve Biko was killed simply because he tried to raise 'Black consciousness' in South Africa. His writings are still relevant today, as I believe that we still need to raise our 'Black consciousness' here in the US.These are OUR heroes, learn about them and pass what you have learned to your kids and [...]

    14. Tough reading, but very important. I liked it enormously. Very difficult to wrap one's head around such terrible thing that were done to Biko. The movie is different, by the way, and is not simply a re-telling of this book. This is a study of a very important man, and done with sensitivity and history and subdued anger. A really good thing to read if you have any interest in the history of apartheid and the current turmoil in race relations in 'that' country.

    15. I don't generally like biography as a genre, but this book is particularly bad. The first third is about Woods, the author, not Biko, the subject. A considerable amount of the remainder is simply direct legal transcripts from the inquest into Biko's death. Everyone should read about Biko and his significance in South African history & politics, but this is NOT the go to book.

    16. First hand account from the white journalist who covered Biko's movement and had to flee South Africa with the manuscript of this book. As with all autobiographies, the hero comes off a little too virtuous to be true, but it's it's a good chronicle of how Biko became Biko and a must read for understanding modern South African politics.

    17. BIOGRAPHY -- South Africa, Civil Rights, PoliticsFall-Spring 1985 while I was at Cal, I slept on the steps of Sproul Hall to encourage the Regents to divest their funds from the Apartheid in South Africa. I read BIKO as part of my education. It was inevitable I suppose being raised around the Black Panthers who at times were some of father's closest friends.

    18. A fascinating condemnation of pre-apartheid South Africa, based on the author's discussions and friendship with Stephen Biko. Biko was eventually murdered by the S. African Security Police, and the author was forced to flee the country for demanding an investigation. I am amazed that so many like Biko sought a peaceful path to freedom despite the violent oppression they faced.

    19. I loved this book and I saw the movie Cry Freedom at least 5 times. The story is difficult and raw but a great read to understand the politics and resistance to racism and classism in South Africa during the Apartheid era.Essential reading.

    20. Tough read. Long, but is interesting to get a glimpse of what this man went through. There are easier Biko books out there. I would suggest you go to the bookstore and read a few pages before you buy to see if it works for you

    21. i read the version released in 1987 -- before mandela was released, before apartheid fell great read, especially in light of the revolution taken place in south africa since the book's release. also interesting to learn the truth about biko's murder revealed post-apartheid.

    22. It was not really a biography but an agenda driving account. The biographical part was interesting and helpful but the record of the trial was boring--I skipped a good bit. He was an interesting man that I'd like to learn more about.

    23. Not so much a biography as it is Woods' memoir and an indictment of apartheid South Africa. I put this in on the "history" shelf as well--at the time it wasn't, but it is worth looking back at this book and others like it, to get a sense of how things were.

    24. Very engaging, realistic portrayal of resistance against Apartheid and the imprisonment of resistance leaders. Shows collusion among Apartheid-era South African leaders with the U.S. and Israel in intelligence, interrogation, and torture techniques.

    25. Wonderful book but you need a huge box of tissues at your side. Let us not forget Steve Biko and what he did for the freedom of his people.

    26. STILL didn't finish it. **sigh*** - I did learn, however, that I can't put down the damn Twilight series!

    27. The Afrikaan Nationalist government of South Africa used the terms "hunger strike" and "suicide" as a euphemism for apartheidic murder when they detained men like Steve Biko for the last time
