Frank Talk was the pseudonym used by Steve Biko to write articles, many of which were later published in a periodical called Frank Talk. This was first published in 1984 and was committed to a theoretical vision of a Black Consciusness ideology. All issues are available online from the DISA website here. Several issues were banned for distribution, at the time, in terms of government legislation but were later unbanned.

The Steve Biko Foundation is commemorating the banning of several Black Consciousness Organisations which took place 33 years ago. They are hosting an event to facilitate dialogue about the roles, rights and responsibilities of the media. The invitation to attend is below. More information is available from
