The explosion will not happen today. It is too soon ... or too late.First published in English in 1968, Frantz Fanon's seminal text was immediately acclaimed as a classic of black liberationalist writing. Fanon's descriptions of the feelings of inadequacy and dependence experienced by people of colour in a white world are as salient and as compelling as ever. Fanon identifies a devastating pathology at the heart of Western culture, a denial of difference, that persists to this day. His writings speak to all who continue the struggle for political and cultural liberation in our troubled times.
I find the firy hot anger Fanon towards white society within Fanon's, while justified, is painful. Unfortunately, I can't say that it's dated and no longer relevant.
If you've just watched Obama's speech on race and you need some scholarly follow up, I highly recommend this collection of his essays.
