I Met Steve Biko at Jan Visser Square
A drug bust against the Nigerians, takes place in Berea Johannesburg. One of the drug dealers throws out cocaine from his balcony and he gets arrested. The police demand bribe, and the dealer calls Orakwe to bring the money to the station. When Orakwe visits the 4th floor of the police station, he encounters an incredibly traumatic experience. Steve Biko turns up and gives Orakwe the encouragement that probably saves his life.
It is a story of drug dealing, racism, xenophobia. This work of fiction, based on a true story, captures the racial paradigms that play out between whites and blacks and between individuals of different nationalities.
