Praise For Black Skin, White Masks…
A strange, haunting mélange of analysis, revolutionary manifesto, metaphysics, prose poetry and literary criticismand yet the nakedest of human cries.” Newsweek
A brilliant, vivid and hurt mind, walking the thin line that separates effective outrage from despair... As a writer he demonstrates how insidiously the problem of race, of color, connects with a whole range of words and images. . . . Yet it is Fanon the man, rather than the medical specialist or intellectual, who makes the book so hard to put down.” Robert Coles, The New York Times Book Review
A reasoned, explosive, and important book centered on the identity problem of the black man, by the author of a classic study of racism and colonialism, Wretched of the Earth.” Publishers Weekly
This book should be read by every black man with a desire to understand himself and the forces that conspire against him.”Floyd McKissick, former national director, CORE
