Dr. Peter Hudis presents: “Frantz Fanon on Race, Recognition, and Revolution Reconsidered”
Open University of the Left welcomes back Dr. Peter Hudis. Today’s struggles against police abuse, racial injustice, and social inequality have produced a rebirth of interest in Frantz Fanon (1926-1961) the Caribbean-born philosopher, psychiatrist, and activist who became a leading theoretician of the African revolutions against colonialism and capitalism. Peter Hudis, author of “Frantz Fanon, Philosopher of the Barricades” (Pluto Press, 2015) will speak on the contemporary importance of his ideas.
Peter Hudis is Professor of Philosophy and Humanities at Oakton Community College and author of numerous works on Hegelian philosophy, Marxian theory, and Critical Race Studies. He is also author of “Marx’s concept of the Alternative to Capitalism” and is General Editor of “The Complete Works of Rosa Luxembourg.” He is a member of the International Marxist-Humanist Organization.
