AFRICANGLOBE - Many would regard Steve Biko as a martyr in the anti-apartheid cause. But the pathway of the martyr after death tends to be the work of others, they who serve a posthumous name or worship at the altar of a legacy. Biko’s contribution was primarily the notion of Black Consciousness, which he considered “an attitude of the mind and a way of life, the most positive call to emanate from the Black world for a long time.”

AFRICANGLOBE - Why South African Blacks unleash their indignation against another fellow Black rather than share their wrath against all? This the question being asked by the continent as to how the red or white are spared but targeted the vulnerable Blacks of the same flesh and blood.

It’s just more than xenophobia because, in retrospect, they only targeted and killed Black foreigners in South Africa.

AFRICANGLOBE - Pentecostal churches are booming in Nigeria, indeed across much of Africa. You can hear the Synagogue Church of All Nations long before you see it. The hymns sung by its 15 000 worshippers, their arms upraised, echo through the streets of Lagos.
