The Founder and Executive Trustee of the Steve Biko Foundation, Mr. Nkosinathi Biko, and the Principal and Vice-Chancellor of UNISA, Professor Mandla Makhanya, cordially invite you to the 18th Annual Steve Biko Memorial Lecture under the theme: “Biko 70/40 – Inspiration Beyond A Lifetime”.
This year’s Lecture will be delivered by Dr. Ibbo Mandaza, internationally renowned speaker analyst, author and academic, and Executive Chairman of the Southern African Political Economy Series Trust, in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of Steve Biko’s death in detention.
The Lecture will be combined – in this year of the 40th Commemoration of the death of Bantu Stephen Biko, and in the year in which he would have been 70 years old – with the conferring of a posthumous Honorary Doctorate on Bantu Stephen Biko by the University of South Africa.
