Franz Fanon: Black Skin White Mask

Black Skin White Mask

I subjected myself to an objective examination, I discovered my blackness, my ethnic characteristics; and I was battered down by tom-toms, cannibalism, intellectual deficiency, fetishism, racial defects, slave-ships, and above all else, above all: “Sho’ good eatin’.”…But I did not want this revision, this thematization. All I wanted was to be a man among other men. I wanted to come lithe and young into a world that was ours and to help build it together. – Frantz Fanon

Dramatization and documentary trace Fanon’s intellectual development. Cultural critics position his pioneering studies of the psychological impact of racism on the colonized and colonizer alike.
