Today in 1977, brotha Steve Biko’s life was taken in Azania / South Africa by the racist Apartheid regime

officially

he was actually already dead from having been captured and tortured by the Police almost a month before. he was then driven to Pretoria pointlessly. all he wanted was his people to be free: mentally, spiritually and culturally. that’s all most Africans want. he gave his life for the cause. our efforts may pale in comparison but… at least make the effort

only 30 years young
