Novel / Screenplay adapted from a true story.

"A wrenching portrait of life in South Africa under apartheid. This is based on the true story of black activist Steve Biko and his friendship with white newspaper editor Donald Woods. Biko opens Woods eyes to the reality of life in South Africa for black people.

Biko is a true hero - despite the cruel way he is treated, he advocates for non-violence and a recognition of the equal value of both black and white people. It is a tragic irony that his position against violence, his deeply held faith, his articulate moderation, his intelligent likeability are all met with police brutality.

This is an important book, a book of the highly acclaimed film, and well-written. An enduring heart-wrenching classic." - RJ Rodda - Goodreads.
