Reflections on Fanon’s legacy: David Austin, Aziz Choudry, Radha D’Souza, Sunera Thobani

Interface, Vol.5, No.1.

Many people consider Martinique-born Frantz Fanon to be one of the most
important anti-colonial thinkers of the twentieth century. Aziz Choudry, one of
the co-editors of this issue of Interface, initiated a discussion with three
colleagues – David Austin, Radha D’Souza, and Sunera Thobani - after many
conversations about the legacy of Fanon in the course of collaborations in both
academic and activist milieus. These four short pieces discuss the relevance of
Fanon’s writings for thought and action in struggles today. In doing so, they
draw upon the writers’ personal, political, activist and academic engagements
with Fanon’s writings and the questions which he grappled with, in a life cut
short by leukemia at the age of 35 in December 1961.
