Cry Freedom (1987)

South African journalist Donald Woods is forced to flee the country after attempting to investigate the death in custody of his friend the black activist Steve Biko.

On September 12, 1977 South African activist Stephen Biko died of injuries from beatings by the police after he had been arrested two weeks earlier. Biko, 30, was leader of the Black Consciousness Movement and had been "banned" (not allowed to speak in public) in 1973 but was still instrumental in planning the Soweto Uprising of 1976 which led to closer police scrutiny. The movie Cry Freedom depicts his life and is based on books by his friend, journalist Donald Woods. #TodayInBlackHistory

CRY FREEDOM (1987), Sir Richard Attenborough's lesser known cinematic masterpiece about the apartheid era in South Africa, made just four years after GANDHI. Fine performances by Kevin Kline and the young Denzel Washington.
