Biko's Educational Background

Steve Biko was born on Dec. 18, 1946, in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. As a child, Biko had showed an early interest in anti-Apartheid politics. Despite being expelled for “anti-establishment” behavior at his first school, he eventually completed his secondary education and went on to attend the Black section of the University of Natal Medical School in 1966.
