Biko’s mom used to work as a cleaner for the hospital. Biko became a Doctor. Biko’s township raised funds for him to further his studies. Biko was so moved by such an act that he started a Ginsberg education fund and led the community. Biko said Black is Beautiful because he experienced it and knew it. This is the beauty I experienced deep within my soul at the Biko Center in Ginsberg today. This beauty that heals you, lifts you up, gives wind to your dreams and lights a fire within you. Beauty. Black is beautiful became a famous saying today I learned that it was accredited to Biko, thank you Mr Google for helping me see that the mystery I experienced was the profound mystery of that beauty. Some places have a life beyond what the eye can see.
