This is a new publication that features 6 texts which respond to themes and ideas in Frantz Fanon’s seminal book Black Skin, White Masks. The texts derive from presentations made in 2021 for the Omitted Histories video series with contributions from Rotimi Akinsete, Jheni Arboine, Anita Waithira Israel, Dr Amita Nijhawan, Rahul Patel and Dr Gurnam Singh. Each piece draws out a unique response to Fanon’s work and brings lived experience to speak pertinently about race, racism and pedagogy. We hope for this to be a valuable resource for educators and beyond to take inspiration from these pieces of writing that manifest and bring forward the anti-racist resistance inherent in Fanon’s work.
The publication has been produced by Rahul Patel and Gemma Riggs. The original video presentations were co-curated by Rahul Patel and Nicola Tagoe. It has been supported by the Academic Enhancement team in the Teaching, Learning and Employability Exchange.
