An insightful book
on 4 April 2005
Black skin, white mask by Frantz Fanon's is a mind-opening novel for humanity irrespective of race or the color of the skin. This book helped me to come to terms with many of the attitudes around. The author's insights into the psychological damage of the black man from colonialism, incomprehension, self-denial, racism, continuous bitterness and other negative consequences still stand as powerful guides in helping us to grapple with the problems of our world. You read the book to the end and come out of the experienced feeling enlightened and a better person. One feels better placed to navigate in our rapidly becoming multicultural world.
I recommend this book along with: THE USURPER AND OTHER STORIES, A BLADE OF GRASS, DISCIPLES OF FORTUNE , TRIPLE AGENT DOUBLE CROSS
