Based on an academic study originally commissioned by the Biko Foundation, this work provides an extensive look into the ideology, politics, and organizational features of the Black Consciousness Movement, a grassroots antiapartheid movement in South Africa in the 1960s. With specific attention paid to the South African Student’s Organization (SASO), a group of students who used political actions to combat apartheid, this text argues that the students' legacy was not just about apartheid, but also encompassed critiques of poverty, class, and gender oppression.
