Grade 4-6-- A simple introduction to the life of the leader of the South African Black Consciousness movement, who died in police detention in 1977. Sansevere-Dreher provides an adequate account of Biko's development into a student leader, and describes clearly what it was like for him to be a ``banned'' person. The book fails, however, to explain clearly the political relationships among the Black Consciousness movement, the African National Congress, and other organizations, and readers are not given a sense of the political and intellectual ferment of the period. In addition, Biko's political colleagues remain nameless. The black-and-white photographs are of varying quality. Numerous small factual errors further mar this biography, which is the only one available for this audience on this interesting and important figure. --Susan Giffard, Englewood Public Library, NJ
