BikoDr Xolela Mangcu, author of Biko: A Biography, will be delivering a lecture titled “Steve Biko in the Intellectual History of the Eastern Cape”, as part of the University of Cape Town’s Summer School programme early next year.

The lecture will locate the ideas of the late Black Consciousness leader, Steve Biko, within a long trajectory beginning with the Khoi-Khoi and San wars of resistance in the northern Cape frontier in the eighteenth century, to the anti-colonial resistance of the Xhosa people on the eastern Cape frontier in the nineteenth century. Mangcu’s Biko: A Biography is recommended reading material for the course.

It will be held Tuesday 25 January at The Centre for Open Learning and will cost R70. UCT staff members pay R35 and students can attend at the reduced rate of R18.
