Iconic African Images – Steve Biko
Steve Biko would have turned 70 this December. Only 70? And he died so long ago. It brings home again how young he was and how much he achieved in his short life.
Drum Magazine ran a feature on Steve Biko in November 1977 and this picture of Steve Biko was the Drum cover for that month.
This image of Steve Biko is the first in our series of iconic photographs. Other images of Steve Biko and the Drum coverage of his funeral are available for licensing as stock images in this gallery of Steve Biko pictures.
If you are interested in more of Biko’s story, Time ran an article using some of these images entitled “The Death of Steve Biko 35 years later” that is worth looking at.
