60th Anniversary of Frantz Fanon's
The Wretched of the Earth
featuring Cornel West in conversation with Andy Zee

Watch the livestream at Revolution Books Berkeley
This Revolution Books program, produced in partnership with the Brooklyn Book Festival, will feature scholar-activist Cornel West, who wrote the introduction for this new edition of the book, in conversation with Andy Zee of Revolution Books and The RNL—Revolution Nothing Less—Show.

This will be a program for all who are outraged by the horrors of the world today, and all who ache for liberation.

One of the most influential radical texts of the mid-20th century, The Wretched of the Earth analyzes the dehumanizing effects of colonialism-imperialism on the oppressed of the Third World. It is a powerful call to revolt. Cornel West’s introduction to this 60th anniversary edition addresses the book’s significance and legacy.

A central question: What is the content of national liberation and revolution in today’s world?

At a time when conditions in the global South cry out ever more for revolutionary transformation… and at a time of acute division in the U.S. heightening revolutionary possibility, this program with Cornel West, the trenchant radical democratic philosopher and activist, and Andy Zee, advocate for the New Communism developed by Bob Avakian, promises to be a critical and engaged conversation.
