An unblinking portrait of the anticolonial struggles of the 1960s, Concerning Violence combines more than one hundred and fifty arresting color and black-and-white photographs from Göran Hugo Olsson’s award-winning documentary, with passages from Frantz Fanon’s classic The Wretched of the Earth. Concerning Violence is a powerful commentary on the history of colonialism and struggles for self-determination, whose echoes remain with us today, and will introduce a new generation to Fanon, whom Angela Y. Davis has called "this century’s most compelling theorist of racism and colonialism."
