Fanon: Anticolonialism and Revolution

Brooklyn, NY June 11 - June 25 | 7:00 PM

Join The Brooklyn Institute for Social Research for Fanon: Anticolonialism and Revolution, a three-week course led by Anjuli Raza Kalb. The writing of Frantz Fanon, whose landmark work The Wretched of the Earth (1961) critiqued Western colonialism as a dehumanizing force, will be the focus of the course. Through a close reading of Fanon's two major works, as well as film screenings on the legacy of Fanon's thoughts, Kalb will also discuss the importance of Fanon as an inspiration to modern protest movements across the world. The course will meet at the offices of A Public Space on Thursdays at 7:00PM for three weeks, beginning June 11. For more information and registration, see The Brooklyn Institute's website.
