Watch: Refilwe Moloto in conversation with Hlumelo Biko on his latest book Black Consciousness: A Love Story
More about the book!
Refilwe Moloto unpacks Hlumelo Biko’s latest book Black Consciousness: A Love Story, brought to you by Jonathan Ball Publishers.
Based on interviews with some of the BCM’s founding members, Black Consciousness describes the early years of the movement in vivid detail and sets out its guiding principles around a positive black identity, black theology and the practice of Ubuntu through community-based programmes.
In spiritual conversation with his father, Biko re-examines what it takes to live a Black Consciousness life in today’s South Africa. He also explains why he believes his father – who was brutally murdered by the apartheid police in 1977 – would have supported true radical economic transformation if he were alive today.
