Re-broadcast of 20th Annual Steve Biko Memorial Lecture delivered by Reverend Al Sharpton today, 20 September 2020 at 19h00

Gauteng – The Steve Biko Foundation and UNISA are pleased to advise our patrons that the 20th Annual Steve Biko Memorial Lecture will be rebroadcast on SABC News tonight (20 September2020) at 19h00 SAST. The rebroadcast was arranged following the technical interference encountered during the live broadcast of the Lecture.

Further, we are exploring the options of also broadcasting the Lecture on the electronic and digital platforms of our other valued media associates during the coming weeks as part of the ongoing commemorative events marking the 43rd anniversary of the death in detention of Steve Biko.

The Lecture can be accessed tonight on DSTV Channel #404 and on the SABC News YouTube Channel (

Both the Steve Biko Foundation and UNISA are extremely pleased that the timeous and inspirational message of Reverend Sharpton to South Africa and the diaspora will now be heard in full. We will continue our plans to invite the speaker to South Africa in future and express appreciation to the partners that have made this important address a reality.

A luta continua!!
