A beautiful photographic exploration of the revolutionary movements in Africa in the sixties and seventies.

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."
