Frantz Fanon was born in Martinique in 1925 and studied medicine in France, specializing in psychiatry. He was sent to a hospital in Algeria, where his sympathies turned toward the Algerian Nationalist Movement, which he later joined. He is considered this century's most important theorist of the African struggle for independence.
