"The black man should no longer have to be faced with the dilemma 'whiten or perish.'"

Martinique / 1952

Black Skin, White Masks is Fanon's classic analysis of the psychological effects that racism has on Black minds. Fanon detailed the constant hyper-consciousness, exhaustion and anxiety of living in a White supremacist and/or colonial society as a Black person. This book is required reading and was WAY ahead of its time. Many a college course and essay are based on this book alone. Have a look!
