Violence, Black Lives and the Way We Talk About Our Histories
You are invited to join an informal virtual conversation organized by Professors Denise McCoskey, Caryn Neumann and Marsha Robinson focused on violence, Black lives and the way we talk about our histories.
In this first session, faculty members will examine the life of Afro-Caribbean intellectual Frantz Fanon, MD. He was born in Martinique, saw Vichy soldiers in his hometown during WWI, joined de Gaulle's Free France movement, went to medical school to become a psychiatrist and was assigned as head of hospital in a mental health facility in Algiers. There he became familiar with the Algerian War of Independence against colonization by France. His writings have been translated into numerous languages around the world.
An introduction to the topic is available at https://www.folger.edu/institute/scholarly-programs/race-periodization/margo-hendricks.
