“So it was not just we're going to go out and shoot the police," said Wayne Pharr survivor of the Black Panther victorious battle against LAPD SWAT. "That wasn’t it. It was a movement... that we were in direct conflict with the repressive forces of the power structure at that time.”


Frantz Fanon (20 July 1925 – 6 December 1961) was born in Martinique and trained as a psychiatrist in Lyon, France before taking up a post in colonial Algeria. He experienced blatant racism as a volunteer in the Free French Army during the Second World War. In Algeria, Fanon came into contact with the Front de Libération Nationale, whose ruthless struggle for independence was met with exceptional violence from the French forces. He identified closely with the liberation movement whereupon he became a propagandist and ambassador for the FLN, as well as anticolonial theorist.
