Meditations on Frantz Fanon’s Wretched of the Earth by James Yaki Sayles

The terms and concepts Franz Fanon uses in The Wretched of the Earth are often uncommon and underutilized in everyday organizing. As a result, many people have difficulty fully understanding his analysis and instructions for decolonization struggles. Unfortunately, we are taught to discuss oppression and injustice as a “color” or “race” problem as opposed to understanding the basics of colonialism and imperialism, not only, in Africa and Asia, but internally in the Americas and Europe. This book serves as a Rosetta Stone and essential companion to gain clarity on The Wretched of the Earth.
