Google celebrates Steve Biko

HONOURED: Google illustration of Steve Biko

THE STEVE Biko Foundation says it is honoured that the world continues to celebrate, the life of the anti-apartheid leader.

Today marks the 70th birthday of the black consciousness movement leader, an organisation that created a new philosophy that encouraged black people to take pride in their identity.

In honour of his birthday, Google created a commemorative doodle of Biko to acknowledge his contribution to the struggle.

Obenewa Amponsah, The Chief Executive Officer of the foundation said Biko has inspired many people around the world.

“I think the interest in Steve Biko’s legacy speaks to the fact that it’s relevant for so many people; issues of consciousness – people asking themselves ‘who am I?’, issues of equality and people doing things for themselves, by themselves still resonates. We are deeply honoured that so many people have joined in remembering who he is.”
