Did you know that Jean-Paul Sartre was interested in anti-colonial struggles and worked together with thinkers such as Frantz Fanon and Albert Memmi? We’re going to spend the next few months exploring this engagement, reading the works of Sartre in relationship to some of his greatest contemporaries in anti-colonial thinking. To start, we’ll be reading Jean-Paul Sartre’s introduction to Frantz Fanon’s important work of black liberation theory: Wretched of the Earth!
