Read in July, 2008

Woods provides a complex and detailed portrait of Steve Biko, a leader of the Black Consciousness movement in South Africa during the period of apartheid, and conveys the extent of the oppression instituted by the South African government on blacks and outspoken whites. Though Woods does not appear to shy away from his or Biko's negative attributes, it is very easy to identify and sympathize with both and find oneself outraged at the way Biko's life was cut short.
