Peter Gabriel has re-recorded his classic song “Biko” with virtual help from musicians around the globe to continue raising awareness about racism. The original 1980 protest song was written as a tribute to Steve Biko, a South African anti-apartheid activist who was murdered in police custody in 1977. The remake is also part of an effort to help raise money for organizations working on social justice issues.
