This week marks the 36th anniversary of the assassination of Steve Biko (September 12, 1977).

Mngxitama discussed the history of Biko and the BCM, as well as, Biko’s relationship to the Black Power Movement here in the U.S. and the continued attempt by liberal academics, politicians and popular culture to co-opt this and other revolutionary movements.
