Overview

DuBois, Fanon, Cabral is an examination of the overlap of culture, class, and political leadership in the Africana liberation struggle. Focusing on the writings and activism of W.E.B. DuBois, Frantz Fanon, and Amilcar Cabral, this book explores the three theorists' articulation of the relationship between acculturation and mass popular leadership among colonized elites in the African diaspora. Through the trans-cultural and historic scope of the book, Dr. Charles F. Peterson demonstrates how colonized elite leadership is a problematic to anti-colonial movements. Engaging in cross-disciplinary approach, Peterson analyzes the various voices, perspectives, and media through which this problem has been addressed. DuBois, Fanon, Cabral is a captivating text that will stimulate discussion among academics and others interested in culture and politics in Africana studies.
