Denzel Washington does a great job portraying Steve Biko in the film, Cry Freedom. This movie is based on Donald Woods book, Biko, a great book for those who have not read it. For those who have not seen this movie, I highly recommend it. The last part of the movie does a great job at bringing to life the Soweto Uprising that occurred on July 16, 1976. Make sure to see at least that scene. It is a very painful scene, I must warn you. Start watching it around 2:18:42.
