The annual Steve Biko Memorial Lecture is given by Africa's foremost scholars and artists, as well as religious and political leaders. Each lecture is a resuscitative moment in which the enduring legacy and leadership of Steve Biko are explored in a contemporary context. Issues crucial to Biko, such as the inextricable link between the individual and society, as well as the challenges and opportunities facing many developing nations are examined in order to further define the mandate for the current generation of leaders. This book is published in commemoration and celebration of the life and legacy of Steve Biko, in the hope that it will contribute to realising the purpose for which he lived and died: restoring people to their true humanity.
