The Biko Legacy Classes Visit Cape Town

A critical component of Steve Biko Foundation’s social development interventions is in the area of education. Currently, Steve Biko is a part of the school curriculum for grades 4, 9, 11 and 12. Biko also frequently appears on the matric exam. These factors make hosting students an integral part of the Foundation’s educational program.

To facilitate these visits, SBF has developed the Biko Legacy Classes, which teachers book to bring their classes to in advance. During these lectures, an SBF program officer details relevant aspects of Biko’s life and the Black Consciousness Movement according to the requirements of the class. Students are also provided with worksheets that are then discussed in order to create an interactive environment.

Due to numerous requests for this intervention in Cape Town, SBF partnered with the Baxter Theatre to facilitate Biko Legacy Classes for previously disadvantaged students from kwa Langa.

Event Details:
Date: Wednesday June 5, 2013
Venue: Guga Sthebe Cultural Centre, Kwa Langa
Time: 9:30 for 10:00

SBF is further exploring the possibility of regularly hosting such sessions in other provinces given the demand for the subject matter and the resource constraints that prevent many schools from visiting the Center.

Below are images from previous sessions of the Legacy Classes.
