Join author Adam Shatz in conversation with Fatema Ahmed to discuss his latest book, The Rebel’s Clinic, a biography of the revered anti-colonial revolutionary Frantz Fanon.
Born in Martinique in 1925, Fanon’s experiences as a black man under French colonial rule had a profound effect on him. In 1952, he wrote Black Skin, White Masks, a vital analysis of the effects of racism on the human psyche.
Living in Algeria, he actively participated in the rebellion of the National Liberation Front (FLN). His final work, The Wretched of the Earth, published in 1961 just before he died has proved to be one of the most controversial yet influential books of our time.
Supported by the Stanley Picker Trust.
