book listing

'We are looking forward to a non-racial, just and egalitarian society in which colour, creed and race shall form no point of reference.' Steve Biko, IWWIL ('American Policy towards Azania'), p 158

First published in 1987, No Fears Expressed is a compilation of quotes taken from the words of the activist and Black Consciousness leader, Steve Biko.

Sourced from the iconic I Write What I Like, including the collection of Biko's columns published in the journal of the South Africa Student Organisation under the pseudonym of 'Frank Talk', as well as from The Testimony of Steve Biko (edited by Millard W. Arnold), this book contains many inspirational quotes and thoughts that are still relevant in South African society today.

Biko's words fall under a wide range of topics including racism, black-white relations, remedies for apartheid, colonialism, black rage and township life. All are topics that reflect the ever-present divide that exists between black and white South Africans.

Steve Biko would have been 70 years old in 2017. His place in history is firmly cemented and the struggle that he gave his life for continues. He left a legacy of thoughts and words, and these words pay tribute to the courage and power of the young leader who was to become one of Africa's heroes.
