Steve Biko Foundation
The Steve Biko Foundation is a community development organisation inspired by the legacy of Bantu Stephen Biko. An examination of the leading South African institutions that have contributed to shaping national discourse, highlights the void that exists in promoting the intangible aspects of development: identity, culture and values, the issues that speak to the soul of a nation. Since its inception, the Steve Biko Foundation has sought to fill this gap; and in the coming decade will intensify its efforts to strengthen democracy by championing dialogue, scholarship and programmes on the relationship between identity, agency, citizenship and social action.
The Steve Biko Foundation is hosting the Steve Biko Lectures in Philosophy under the theme ‘Still Hoping for a Revolution’ on 19 July 2016 in Johannesburg.
