Flower for Frantz
"Each generation must discover its mission, fulfill
it or betray it, in relative opacity."
- Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth
Because he was Black, from the Caribbean, because
he was a mental health professional, a man, an internationalist, a great thinker,
a prolific writer, his name will forever have a prominent place in this artist's
own search for a sense of mission. For 5 decades his work has inspired and
guided revolutionary national struggles throughout the world. He is one of
the very few humans who was brilliant and courageous enough to thoroughly
explain the psychological and political necessity of violence when confronting
a violent enemy.
