Black Skin, White Masks
By Frantz Fanon
Few modern voices have had as profound an impact on the black identity as Frantz Fanon's, and this book represents some of his most important work. A major influence on civil rights and black consciousness movements around the world, it is the unsurpassed study of the black psyche in a white world. Hailed for its scientific analysis and poetic grace when it was first published in 1952, the book remains a vital force today.
Frantz Fanon was born in Martinique in 1925 and studied medicine in France, specializing in psychiatry. For this book and others, including, Wretched of the Earth, A Dying Colonialism and Toward the African Revolution, Fanon is considered to be this century's most important theorist of the African struggle for liberation. He died in 1961.

By Mario Van Peebles, U. Y. Taylor and J. T. Lewi
Almost 30 years after the beginnings of the history-making Black Panther Party, director Mario Van Peebles, inspired by his father's writings, made the riveting and acclaimed feature film "PANTHER" that enables us to see the Black Panthers as they really were.

Drawing from original interviews with participants and recently de-classified government documents, this book gives us the most inclusive pictorial history published to date. The book is divided into two sections, Part One: The History of the Black Panthers and Part Two: The Film. Includes more than 200 photos and illustrations.
