Denzel Washington as Steve Biko in Cry Freedom

As part of the exhibition about the death of Black Consciousness leader Steve Biko 19 Days in September, the Sophiatown The Mix community centre (which adjoins the excellent house museum dedicated to the memory of the 1955 forced removals) hosts a special free film screening of the 1987 Richard Attenborough film Cry Freedom.

Cry Freedom
is set in late 1970s South Africa and centres on the real-life events involving black activist Steve Biko and his friend Donald Woods. A young Denzel Washington plays the role of the late Steve Biko and Kevin Kline plays the white newspaper editor Donald Woods.
