Frantz Fanon was born in 1925 on the island called Martinique in the Caribbean Sea. His first book was “Black Skin, White Masks”. Frantz Fanon died at the age of thirty-six in Washington, DC from cancer.
The Wretched of the Earth was greatly influenced by philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, the first chapter “Concerning Violence” states abruptly that “decolonization is always a violent phenomenon.” Without a doubt, Frantz Fanon was a revolutionary psychologist and psychiatrist, during his lifetime he made a big contribution to Algerian Revolution and was not a stranger to social change. He saw the obviousness of social structure being split up and thought it to be the result of encompassing impacting social relationships between individuals, between organizations and institutions, and formal and informal gatherings of people. This was the age when nations were gaining their independence and this was accompanied by the violence and disruption everywhere.
