Artist's Description

Frantz Fanon, born in Martinque, (born: July 20, 1925 – reborn: December 6, 1961), was a psychiatrist, philosopher, author and committed revolutionary for the human rights of MAN.

Frantz Fanon was a fearless critic of colonialism and a key figure in Algeria’s struggle for independence. His work and life has significant influence in the field of post-colonial studies. Fanon is perhaps the pre-eminent thinker of the 20th century on the issue of global African decolonization and the psychopathology of colonization waged by imperialist oppressors. His works has inspired anti-colonial liberation movements for more than four decades..

Frantz Fanon’s voice echoes across time: “For Europe, for ourselves and for humanity, comrades, we must make a new start, develop a new way of thinking, and endeavor to create a new man.”

This work is dedicated to Professor William (Bill) Strickland, W.E.B. DuBois Department of African-American Studies at the University of Massachusetts. I was introduced to the significance of Fanon as a Amherst College student during a course Professor Strickland taught: “The Writings of Frantz Fanon”.
